Third-Party Custody - Minnesota Court Forms and Information
The Minnesota Courts have forms that can help when establishing and responding to third-party custody actions.
Third-party custody is when a court gives legal and physical custody of a child to someone who is not a biological parent.
Select the option below that applies to your issue.
Forms on the Courts website are organized in "packets" and by individual forms. Packets include form instructions and all individual forms. If you are not sure what form you need, start with the Packet and download each individual form in the packet as you need. Make sure you read the form instructions to find the right forms for your case.
Some Minnesota court forms are “Fillable Smart Forms.” For information and help using Fillable Smart Forms, see Technical Support.
