Recent Limited Guardianship questions

I am currently living at Goodfellow AFB in San Angelo Texas.

Hello Pearl Wilson , My name is***** and I am currently living at Goodfellow AFB in San Angelo Texas . My wife and I came to Texas in August 2016 to help with our two grandchildren who are 4 and 1 years of age . Their parents are both military and their mother deployed to Afghanistan in September . We sold our home in NY and I retired in September other wise we would not have been able to do this . We found out after we said we would help that the mother had an option not to deploy and she chose to deploy . During her deployment she became pregnant , they are tested before they leave , she has since lost the baby . So now they are getting a divorce and a custody battle . They had court on Tuesday of this week and our son was granted temporary custody with a joint managing consentorship . The mother at this time has every other weekend visitation , she is currently living in Killian . The children are living in San Angelo with our son and myself , my wife had to return to NY to take care of a closing on property she is selling . We have been helping with the children since September and both have power of attorney for them . The oldest child is not biologically my sons and he has not adopted him . Due to my sons current schedule I am their care giver . They do not seam to be able to come up with a reasonable agreement about visitation time or who or when they will be taken to Killeen for her visitation , and she does not want to abide by any of the structure we have set for the children , she is very disagreeable . I am concerned for the children's well being as I do not feel she is mentally stable enough to properly care for the children . The reason her deployment was cut short is because she attempted suicide in Afghanistan . Do I have any legal rights in this matter , as I said I am concerned for the children's well being . Thank You for your time .JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Texas !JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not at this time

I have a question to ask. I am under limited guardianship

Hi I have a question to ask. I am under limited guardianship appointed over me by a Florida judge. I think this guardianship is fully illegal under international law as I'm a dual citizen of both Israel and USA and it infringes upon my Israeli civil rights I'm sure of it. I am a grown adult with high functioning autism as well who is self-employed. Because I am a dual citizen and this guardianship restricts me from certain things as an Israeli its a violation of international law I think. Can you please advise if I am correct?

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.
