Hi, My name is Philip. I am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question
For you to enroll her, you will need to have custody in some manner.
One way to accomplish this would be to have the court appoint you as "guardian" of the child.
The court would grant guardianship
, to you, if you can demonstrate that this would be best for the child.
There are a few ways to approach this.
One would be to go to DFS and request they assist you. They have lawyers on staff who can file the request to the court. OR, if DFS does not support this, you could hire an attorney and have them prepare and present this request to the court.
What you are describing? Sounds like you have a good chance, if the child wants to live with you and you can provide a safe home ? I would expect the court to grant the request.
Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
