A good start would be to keep account of any visits from parents or if they do not visit keep the dates since last visit. Keep track of any support or lack therof . I would need to know more details to answer the question.

Did both parents have legal custody before you got temporary custody? If so, you can file a custody action against them. If it was only one parent, you need to file against him/her. An experienced family law attorney can help you with this.
