The child's mother is the legal guardian of your grandson. Absent a court order to the contrary, you are not your grandchild's legal guardian.
That said, the mother may provide you with the power of attorney to act in her stead.
I would be glad to respond to any related follow-up questions that you may have when you return online.
Thank you for responding so quickly. I think this is all the information I needed. Just want to make sure the state doesn't hold me accountable as they served me the court papers and not the mother. I do not now or have I ever had custody of my grandson although he did live with me and his grandfather for 2 months last year but we did not get legal custody of him. Thank you.
