HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.Yes, she can unless you have a court deem her to be incompetent and unable to care for herself.
Thank you. I understand. If that is the case, then I suggest a court is not going to listen to her opposition.
And if you have the documentation supporting the need for you to be her guardian, then that is what you need.
It depends. If you can show that it needs to be a permanent guardianship then the court will order it for a lifetime. If the court feels that the structure of a group home may be helpful and therapeutic then it would order it on a temporary basis.
Not necessarily. You could file the Petition for Guardianship and it could be placed on a docket. The tie up would come if your child wants to oppose it and the court appoints an attorney for them to protect the child's interest. Then it could take as long as it is going to take. It could be a year, or it could be 6 months. There are so many factors that could come into play it is difficult to give a definitive answer as to how long it will take.
I wish I could provide a more definitive answer.
