I am sorry to hear this.

Is there a mother at all?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
The mother has forfeited all rights to the children who are now 13 and 12. The mother lives on the streets and is a drug addict. Has never seen either of the children since the second one was born. She is forbidden to contact.

OK

So what the father has to do is put a provision in his Will stating he wants your niece to have guardianship of the children and that will help a lot.

But this provision is not binding.

A better approach if there is time is for her to adopt the children now. That way there is no issue of anyone else trying to seek custody. If they do the Will will be excellent evidence to show what the father thought was best for the kids but it is not a guarantee. The adoption is the safest approach.

Does that help?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
