I have a family member who has 2 children and clearly is

I have a family member who has 2 children and clearly is unable to take care of them. She has been in and out of jail and is currently homeless. The children have bounced around from home to home and motel to motel until she finally asked me to keep her kids. I of course accepted the task of the 2 children, but now I don't know what to do. They need to be enrolled in school, go to the doctor and anything else you can think of that I obviously don't have the rights those things. The only communication we had was through facebook, she has since unfriended me on facebook and now I have no way to contact her. The other parent has been in jail for around 4 years now. What can I do? If anything? What are my rights?

My mom pasted 12yrs ago without a will. We never knew

My mom pasted 12yrs ago without a will. We never knew anything about probate. At the time I was working, I took care of all of her bills, up until four years ago, with no help from my siblings. Now that I'm disabled, I can no longer care for the property. So now that the property has been vandalized, the city has been coming after me personally, for thousands of dollars in violtions. A judge told me that my siblings and I owned the property through inheritance. My siblings want no part of the property. The city' s coming after me, (they said) because I was the one paying the bills at the time of her death. They sent me a letter from the finance department stating, that they would take my checking account ( of my disability) if I did not pay. I thaought that they couldn't touch my disability money. I'm barely getting with what I get.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IllinoisJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I had a motion filed against me.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes. I went to the tax department and they told me that I do not own the property unless a judge appoints me. Also, I tried to sell the property, but I couldn't, because my name is ***** ***** the deed or the title. Plus I found out that there is a lien on the property for $42000. From the Illinois Department of Human Services. Doesn't that mean that they could own the house through foreclosure?
