Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
You are his legal guardian and you need to go to the school and correct whatever she put on the forms and inform them that they had no legal right to put her down or keep her down as she never produced any court guardianship
papers to the school as required and she was there only because you were sick that day with your consent.
Second, you need to go to court and seek to file a restraining order
against her and her husband to keep her away from your child based on this last incident which indeed could have been pursued as kidnapping, since you said he could not go. You must take steps to protect your child from these people and the step you need to take is based on the issue where she took him against your will, even though she returned him this time, and the comments she keeps making, you need to get a restraining order/ of protection and have her served with the order. If she violates the order even one time, you must remain firm and call the police and she will be arrested. This is really the only way for you to protect the child and yourself from this bully.
What she is trying is to bully you to do something illegal so she can use that to try to prove you are an unfit parent. Be careful with medications though, because they are high doses even though they are prescribed by the doctor. Your doctor would have to testify you are able to function and properly care for and raise your child on those medications if your sister tries to file a petition for guardianship. Courts rarely do grant third party guardianship since the US Supreme Court held in Troxel v. Granville that the right of a biological parent
to raise a child is a fundamental right, but if she can prove you are unfit, the court could do so.
Thus, you need to keep your evidence of your parenting and what you do with your child for guidance and school and to help your child and raise him, to show in case she tries something and prove you are indeed a fit parent regardless of the medications which you need for your severe medical condition.
