My name is***** have over 16 years experience in the law. Should you like to chat on the phone I am happy to for a nominal cost. Let me know at any time during our question and answer session if you are interested I am happy to give you more details.

This is up to the court. That is, if a court removes parental rights, at that same time they will appoint a guardian for the child.

Family members can apply to be appointed as guardian...but it is not automatic. It is up to the court to determine, based on what is best for the child, to determine will be appointed guardian
