The father can interfere with the guardianship if his rights have not been terminated either voluntarily or involuntarily.
A guardianship is used when the parents are unable or unwilling to care for their children. An example would be if the parent is incarcerated or is battling drug abuse
5101:2-42-95 Obtaining permanent custody: termination of parental rights.
The law that governs guardianships in Ohio can be found at
2111.01 Guardian and conservatorship
The only time a parent loses the rights with regard to their children is by the voluntary or involuntary termination of their rights.
Grounds for terminating parental rights
“A guardianship is a legal relationship between a minor child and a guardian that gives the guardian certain rights and obligations regarding the child. A guardianship does not sever the legal relationship that exists between a child and his or her biological parents, however. Instead, it co-exists with that legal relationship.
An adoption, on the other hand, permanently alters the legal relationship between a child and his or her biological parents. Adopted parents become the legal parents and biological parents give up all parental rights and obligations. This means that biological parents no longer owe child support, and that the child can no longer automatically inherent from his or her biological parents”
