Hi! I'm Heather. I've been a practicing attorney for the last 15 years, and I'd be happy to assist you for informational and educational purposes.
Just a moment as I prepare the response...
The general rule is that you as a parent have an interest in your child and have standing to ask for the guardianship to be transferred to you. You will have to file a petition to modify the existing guardianship case and explain to the court why it is in your son's best interests that the guardianship be transferred to you. Based on the facts you have laid out, it seems to me that you would be the better guardian.
Does that answer your question?
