I adopted a sibling group of four children from the foster

I adopted a sibling group of four children from the foster care system in 2012 after fostering them for four years. The kids are looking to move in with their biological aunt for the upcoming school year and maybe continue to live with her full time after that. Its a long story but a positive one and a journey that included years of therapy for the kids and lots of hard work on our part to get them to where they are now. CPS really ravaged this family and never wanted to give the family a chance due to their economic status. Their a wonderful family no substance abuse problems or physical abuse. Their bio mother was just the black sheep and estranged from the family. So the bio mother in no way reflects the care of the aunt and extended family. The aunt that they want to live with is married, homeowner and financially stable. She's been a part of their lives during the almost seven years they lived with me. I don't know the legal terms but were looking to transfer custody. I don't think the family wants to do a full adoption since its so expensive. But is there a guardianship or another option to allow the biological Aunt to enroll them in school and have the authority to take them to doctor appointments and basic care needs for the kids. My husband and I will see them often and probably help out a little financially. I asked this question online and an attorney said I could do a guardianship. He suggested retaining an attorney but after working with five attorney's in my area and three hundred dollars later no one knows how to do this. The last attorney I worked with told me she just didn't have the experience and she came highly recommended as being a expertise in this field. So is their a way for me to file the paperwork to petition to the court since I'm not having much luck finding an attorney to take on the case. We live in a smaller town and so the pool of experienced attorneys is maybe limited.

I was just served papers from my mother for temporary guardianship,

I was just served papers from my mother for temporary guardianship, but it says I don't have to go to the hearing...why, is that? I take good care of my son and he's saying he doesn't want to live with her. When he doesn't get his way at home he runs to my mother and tell her I don't feed him, which is not true and I'm not taking care of him. "Now he's saying he wish he never said that, because it's been taken to fare he only wanted attention. CPS hasn't been to my house and the court date is coming up soon. He's crying and upset saying he wants to be with me, his mom...what to do????
