Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
In georgia i guess there is a difference
You can get the forms you need from family court to file for a court order granting you custody of the children with the consent of your daughter. You should be able to do this without an attorney.
Here is a site that has a consent to custody forms that you might find of help also but start with the court website.
If you have custody you are the guardian of the minor child unless it is just temporary custody such as for a visit.

Sorry I've already tried family court in gordon county.....they don't have the forms only for temporary guardianship.....all i need is the forms and none I have found seem to be the right ones....I don't have a lot of money to keep paying places for the wrong forms. The court is small and just keeps telling me to hire an attorney I asked them if anyone has done custody pro se and they said NO....Help what is my next step???
I suggest you start with an agreement granting you custody. Here are some forms you can use as a template.
agreement to give custody to grandparents that can be used.
Then you would prepare a consent order for the judge to sign affirming the grant of custody but the agreement should serve your purpose without a court order.
