Franklin County Judge Orders Shared Custody for Baby

By Sheryl Rentz on March 3, 2010

According to an article published at www.publicopiniononline.com, a Franklin County judge gave a toddler’s parents joint custody in a temporary custody order, and then scheduled another hearing to determine permanent custody. The decision was made during a hearing to determine whether Colorado or Pennsylvania has jurisdiction in the case.

The child was born in Colorado but has lived with his paternal grandmother in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania for the last four months. In a special arrangement between the grandmother and mother, the child was to stay temporarily while the mother was on bed rest due to her current high-risk pregnancy. When the mother came to get her son last month to take him home to Colorado, the grandmother refused to turn him over. The father then filed for custody. The father acknowledged that he was not named on the child’s birth certificate and did not have custody of the child. Under the temporary order, the child will be turned over to his mother when she arrives back in Pennsylvania. The article states that a final appealable custody order is expected to be issued August 6, 2010.
