Hello, I am happy to assist you today.
I find it hard to believe that your landlord is really making you go through this in order to get your sister's children enrolled in school. It seems ridiculous to me. I also find it hard to believe that the school really needs proof of a lease in order for them to enroll. I would think that it would be ok for her to be staying with family.
I am convinced that you can get this done in a more simple way. I think you need to speak with both the school and the landlord again.
In the event that it is necessary for you to get guardianship, you must be aware that this will remove the mother's legal responsibility for the children and is a huge undertaking for you. I definitely do not advise it. And yes, you would have to go to court and have a hearing to get guardianship, and it could take many months, or even up to a year to go through.
Best of luck,
