Can I get custody of a sibling?
WARNING VERY LONG IF YOU WANNA PASS THE DETAILS JUST SKIP TO THE LAST FEW SENTENCES…
I’m 19 years old and going to college to be a social worker, I own a 2 bedroom apartment in Minnesota. I’m very responsible and I make a fair amount of money as a PCA.
Now here is my question… My brother is 5 years old, he was born in Kansas, he was kind of a mistake on my dads part but we still love him to death! My dad became a truck driver for a while and was able to visit him in Kansas then come up to Minnesota to visit me and my sisters. Well My brothers mom must have gotten sick of my dad’s visits so she moved to Nevada about 3 years ago, we have’nt seen my brother since and my dad tries to visit him once a year. its expensive and takes a lot of work, shes always suing him for more child support. My dad tries his best to see his son whenever he can but its becoming difficult… after the court denied him once more over joint custody so my brother could come see us and his family here in Minnesota he became depressed and moved back to his parents…
Now my question is can I sue her for joint custody? and how would i go about it? would i have to go threw Nevada courts? I’m looking for advice… do i have a case?
