Q. DSS removed my child due to a positive drug screen that is not accurate due to a medication I'm prescribed
A: What you haven't mentioned is if you've provided a statement from your doctor confirming that you are prescribed for Adderall.
Q. Back in 2012 i signed a document between me and my parents for them to have temporary custody of my son and had it
A: Although your question doesn't state where the agreement was entered into, I assume that it was done in South Carolina. Because your agreement was never court approved, it is not enforceable as a custody order. It would merely convey to your parents the authority to obtain medical care for your child and to enroll him in school. Your parents don't need to "sign him back over". You may wish to send your parents a letter revoking the agreement and keep a copy for your records.
Q. My mother wants to transfer her property to me. We're unsure of how to proceed with that. Is it easiest to sell it?
A: She could have a new deed prepared conveying her 100% interest in the property to you. Your question doesn't provide any information as to why she would want to do that. 1) If she is wanting to transfer her property in anticipation of entering a nursing home, she can have a deed prepared that gives her a life estate in the property until her death then the property would be yours. A life estate would permit her to continue living in the home and she would continue to be financially responsible for it, but would not be able to sell it. 2) if she wants to transfer her property to you to avoid estate tax upon her death, South Carolina has no estate tax. For federal estate tax, her estate would have to be valued at greater than $11million for any tax to be owed.
