Hello: This isCustomer Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
I am sorry to read about this sad situation.
I need clarification. You stated that your wife was appointed Guardian of her sister by her mother. Then you said that your wife needs a full guardianship. I am a bit confused. A Guardian has full guardianship of the ward. However, if the Guardianship is not approved by the Court, then your wife needs to file Emergency Motion for Guardianship and simultaneously file for temporary Guardianship so that she would be appointed Legal Guardian of her sister while permanent Guardianship petition is going through the system--is being processed by the Court.
Thank you for the information.
That is correct. She needs to file papers with the Court for Guardianship. It does not matter if the State would fight her. As the twin sister, she has grounds to want to be the one who speaks and acts on behalf of her sister and also pursue the group home for negligence. The State has conflict of interest because it is unlikely for the State to go after itself for negligence. She would need to consult with a local Attorney who handles family law and mental health issues to assist her with that part of the case.
