So sorry to hear of this dilemma. If my answer is not clear to you, please ask me for clarification by using the reply button.
although your husband may state his guardianship preference in his will, it is not binding
a parent is the natural guardian of her child. You remain your child's guardian regardless of the language in the will unless a court has previously terminated your parental rights
Please let me know if you have any questions concerning my answer. Otherwise please click accept.
What do you mean by terminating your parental rights?
This means that the court previously determined that you were not a fit parent and terminated your rights as a parent. If this did not occur you are your child's guardian
I had visitation and we were starting custody mediation but then I did a bad thing since I did not have representation; my husband would not honor visitation and so I threatened to cancel the health insurance.
That was bad and his attorney went and filed a petition against me and won. Visitation was ended. because the health insurance was a court order.
This does not mean that your parental rights were terminated. It appears that you remain the legal guardian of your child
how come by divorce attorney did not tell me that
I do not know -- you should ask him. Remember I am answering your questions based upon the information you give me. Perhaps he has some other information that I am not aware of
he was pissed that I called him at home and just said I do not do probate work.
perhaps that is why he didn't tell you!
