Is it possible to regain custody after signing away parental rights?


My husband signed away his parental rights 2 years ago to his son. He was in no position to take care of him, and felt that it was the best thing he could do for his son. The grandparents got custody (not his parents). He would have never disturbed their family, but now the grandfather is in jail, and his son & adopted mom are living on the streets. He is 5 years old and has not been in school, gotten shots, and they are considering foster care as they do not want him anymore. We are now in a position that we can take him and give him a good life. Is there anything we can do? They would rather give him to the state then give him back to his dad so it would be a fight.

    I believe if you can prove that the child has a stabel home and that he can be provided for you can appele the courts. also I would sign up for classes on parenting, to show that you are making an effort. also i would call dss myself and tell them of his living conditions and that you could provid better. also i would try to get an ex-party order feeling that your child is in danger.

    Get a lawyers advice first.Obviously this child has been neglected in a big way not to have had his injections or attended school.You have to prove to the courts that you are both responsible enough to give this poor child a life that he deserves.If you have access to this child get him to a doctor asap and ask for a medical report they can come in handy with court.Good luck

    HONESTLY IT WOULD DEFINITELY BE ONE HELL OF A FIGHT.SIGNING OVER YOUR PARENTAL RIGHTS STRIPS YOU OF ALL YOUR RIGHTS AS A PARENT FOREVER YOU HAVE NO SAY-SO IN YOUR CHILDS WELFARE AND WHEN A PARENT COMES TO THAT DECISION THEN THAT BASICALLY MEANS THAT YOU ARE SURE OF WHAT IT IS THAT YOU WANT TO DO.THINGS WOULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT IF HE WOULD HAVE JUST GAVE THEM TEMPORARY CUSTODY UNTIL HE WAS ABLE TO GET HIS SON BACK.MY QUESTION IS IF THE GRANDFATHER WOULDN’T HAVE WENT TO JAIL AND HIS MOM WASN’T LIVING ON THE STREETS WOULD HE STILL BE INTERESTED IN GEETING HIM?
