HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regardI need to be clear1 - you had custody of your grandson and you then did a Temporary Guardianship for someone else to care for him?2 - was this just between you too? Or was it done in court? 3 - And now you want your grandson back and she won't allow it?4- Does your grandson want to return to you? 5 - You never signed anything in front of a Notary?

HelloThank you. I suggest that if the guardianship was not signed in front of the Notary, then you have a potential kidnapping since the person who your grandson is living with is a stranger - you said, not family. And you can call the police and tell them your grandson is being held against his will. And ask them to go with you to get him. The other process is through court to have the guardianship removed. But if it was not legal in the first place, the police should be able to hand this for you.
