I have had full custody for my girls from my exhusband for 5 years. Just recently he told me that he was dying and would more than likely would not be around for too many more years. I agreed for our girls to go stay with him and his wife for this school year only. That way they would have spent tiem together before he got really sick. I just heard from my son ( who stayed with me) that they are planning to wait 6 months and then try to get custody back of my girls. Stating something about abandoning them. I had him sign paperwork and had it noterized that I was not giving up custody and that this was temporary gaurdinship for this school year only. He is 30,000.00 behind in child support which I know I will never see and I was trying to be nice to him and for my girls. I think this whole dying thing was just a ploy now to get my girls. What are the laws about 6 months is child abandonment in Arkansas. And Can he keep them from me with my custody paperwork and this letter I had him noterize that it was just a temperary gaudianship. I am just very worrried. Any advise.
