You mention mom...where is dad in this picture? Is there a dad on the birth certificate?
Thank youIn that case, I would expect you have a great chance to obtain guardianship. You need to go in front of the probate court to accomplish this. For this, you need a lawyer
The adage "a man who represents himself has a fool for a client" is often true. If you act as your own lawyer, the court will expect you to know the law/rules/procedure/evidence just as if you were admitted to the bar. They (the court) will not cut you any slack. If the goal is to win the case, hire a lawyer.Now...it may be that your county child services agency can assist you. YOu can contact them to see if they will sponsor your request (have their lawyer file this on your behalf). If they will? great...you save the expense.Otherwise, hire a local attorney and they can file this for you
Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
