For one reason or another you may have lost custody of your children from a third-party, but that doesn’t entirely mean you can’t get it back. One of the most popular questions surrounding children and third-party custody is whether or not biological parents regain custody of their children once they’ve gotten their life back on track.
Can biological parents regain custody from a third-party?
It is very possible to regain custody of your children because courts are wanting legal parents to raise their own children if at all possible. If someone is now free of their addiction, has changed their life after being in prison or whatever their situation was, and gotten their act together so to speak, then that parent would petition the court to start having more access to their child – to have a bigger part in their child’s life – and then could continue to request relief in the future as things got better and better with that parent and the child to the point where it would make sense for the child to be returned to the parent’s custody.
