Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If her father is a legal guardian, you cannot take your daughter anywhere without his consent. If you take the ward to another state without consent of the guardian, it could actually be considered kidnapping or interfering with parental custody. So, if you want to take the ward (as she is an adult under guardianship), but the father who is legal guardian will not agree, your only way to legally do this would be to file a motion in court to ask the court that granted the guardianship for permission to take her.
