CURRY v. LITTLE.
34293.
PER CURIAM.
Custody of child. Baldwin Superior Court. Before Judge Duke.
In this child custody action, the maternal aunt appeals from a judgment denying her petition for habeas corpus brought against the children's natural father. The natural parents were married but at the time of the natural mother's death they were separated.
A person who has no legal right to the custody of a minor child has no standing to bring a habeas corpus action to obtain custody of such a child from a natural parent with parental rights. Spitz v. Holland, 243 Ga. 9 (1979). See Code Ann. 24A-301 (a) (1) (c), 24A-301 (a) (2) (c), 24A-1602, 24A-3201 (a). An aunt has no legal right to the custody of a minor child who has a living natural parent with parental rights. The trial court did not err in denying the aunt's petition for habeas corpus.
Robert H. Herndon, for appellee.
Lonzy F. Edwards, for appellant.
SUBMITTED DECEMBER 1, 1978 -- DECIDED FEBRUARY 27, 1979.
