We have legal guardianship of our gret niece. Her mother (there is no dad on the burth certificate nor has anyone shown up since then) has a history of mental probelms, is living with a lifetime criminal and his parents, has no job and no transportation.

No, to the contrary.

 

First, it's you house and you have the absolute right to deny or accept someone into your home - all that you have to say to her is that she's not welcome.

 

Second, you might want to get a court order as to custody/visitation as between your great niece and her mother to alleviate any potential problems down the road - that she is only entitled to supervised visitation - which the court will readily grant.
