Sometimes, for a number of different reasons, the extended family of a child may have temporary custody. This it typically the Grandparents or aunts/uncles of a child when a parent cannot care for the child. This is an abbreviated process designed to ensure that the extended family can seek medical attention for the child and act on the child's behalf to do such things as enroll the child in school, ect. It is very important to formalize this often informal situation to ensure that there is a person with the power to care for the child.
