HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.To be clear1 - The Grandmother has legal custody ordered from a court?2 - Where are the parents?3 - And not the Grand mom cannot care for the child? 4 - And so you want to have legal guardianship of the child?
Yes, you can file for legal Guardianship if the parents rights have been terminated, which it appears they have.Let me see what information on the forms I can get for you.
It does not appear the forms to file for the Guardianship of a Minor are online. You will need to go to the clerk of the family court in the county where you and child live. Tell the clerk you need the packet of documents to file for legal guardianship of a minor.Although here is a form for a Petition for Guardian of Person though it is for Shelby and Memphis counties.
The clerk of the court can provide you with the forms or if they will not then you will want to consult with a local attorney and if need be you can have legal aid assist you.
