How can I gain legal custody of someone else's children whom the parent is neglectful and shows no interest of supporting her children?
My brother and his wife has two children together. My brother passed away this year in May. His wife has shown no interest in getting a job, home or anything to support and raise these children. She currently is living with one person then another. I am very concerned for these children and their well-being. What do I need to do to get custody of these kids. Do I start off with filling a report with social service, or the police or just hire a lawyer??? I need to know the for sure way to get things started. We live in the state of Kentucky and I'm not for sure if the laws are different is each state.
