IS IT POSSIBLE FOR ALL 3 OF US TO SHARE THE RESPONSIBILITY EQUALLY? I am sorry to hear about this dilemma that you are facing. Yes it is possible for all three to become court appointed co-guardians with you, but not unless they agree to serve as such. It would certainly be best for all three to assume some responsibility so that one person doesn't shoulder the entire burden, but it can't be forced on anyone. Perhaps the social services workers can suggest ways that the siblings can help on a voluntary basis without assuming formal responsibility. l thank you for submitting your question to Pearl-Just Answer.
