How do I become the legal guardian of my 15 year old nephew

This answer was rated:

How do I become the legal guardian of my 15 year old nephew - he is unable to stay at home due to differences with his stepfather, his mother has asked if he can live with me.
What state of Australia are you in?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
In that case you are going to have to have a family lawyer draft consent orders to be signed by the boy's mother and yourself making you the legal guardian over your nephew. These orders get endorsed by the Court and then become binding on all parties.

Should you have any other questions, please let me know.
