Hello, how are you today?

JACUSTOMER-8fx3p3z7- :

upset at this injustice to me and my son

meigs004 :

Let me review your facts.

JACUSTOMER-8fx3p3z7- :

ok what info do u need

meigs004 :

Just what you have typed, I am trying to read everything that you have posted, and I understand your frustration completely.

meigs004 :

Now, why is a guardian appointed to your son?

JACUSTOMER-8fx3p3z7- :

i let maternal grandma have temp. custody because of my dangerous living conditions, where i lived people were using drugs and it wasnt my place so i couldnt do anything about it and his mother was in jail, grandmother said shed help until i found more stable living arrangements.i did but was forced to move back to the unfit home shortly after, at that time she was granted permanate guardianship. i was unable to make it to the court date to contessed it

meigs004 :

Ok, thanks for that information. In your present case, if the nephew and girlfriend are breaching the order allowing the old guardian to see the child unsupervised, and the current living arrangements are unfit for the child and not suitable for the child's upbringing, and you have proof of these allegations, you could file a petition/motion to terminate the guardianship. You will have to have a part of that petition/motion all the allegations that you contend are taking place, and if you have a stable income, a suitable place to live, and an adequate environment (c.p.s. may seek to do a "home study) to raise the child, you could seek to regain custody of your child. However, you will need to be able to show extrinsic proof that you are able to provide all of the above in order to get custody of him back, considering you voluntarily assigned the individual as the guardian. I am not saying you are a bad person for doing so, but I am commending you for doing what was right for your child at the time!

JACUSTOMER-8fx3p3z7- :

JACUSTOMER-8fx3p3z7- :

i already knew all that, im trying but no one will help me

meigs004 :

I apologize for not providing more encouraging information for you, but your question was "is there anything I can do?" The answer is yes there is, and in order to accomplish what you want to do, you will have to do what I stated. It may be something you could do yourself, by seeking the clerk of court and seeing if they have a standard form to petition the court without an attorney, would you like me to find that form for you.

meigs004 :

Most of California's forms are online.

JACUSTOMER-8fx3p3z7- :

that didnt really help me thank u though

meigs004 :

I am not aware of the information that you possess when you come to the chat, and I can not read your mind prior to our conversation.

JACUSTOMER-8fx3p3z7- :

thank for ur time

meigs004 :

Please stop rating the answer poor, as it was an accurate answer. Good luck. The poor ratings reflect on my profile.
