My question is in relation to the following example (and any equivalent situations):

My package from Amazon has arrived and is with my mom.

Would it be better to say for instance:

My package from Amazon has arrived and my mom has it.

Thanks!

It's not wrong but your second sentence would be a lot more common.

"With" would probably used more often when talking about delivering/transporting as in

I bought you a present. I'm sending it with mom since she's coming to see you next week

    I don't see anything unusual in saying that an item of property is 'with' the person who is looking after it. – Kate Bunting Jun 3 '20 at 15:33
