The court order should be in the court file by now, that is all you need to start acting as guardian. You need to go to the clerk's office and seek the copy from the court file. If it is not in the court file, you need to go to the judge's secretary to find where the order is.
Thank you for your reply.
The order should have been entered that day if no objections were filed. Only the judge can sign the order, so all you can do legally is go to the judge or his clerk for the copy of the order. If there is still no order, then you have to file a Motion for Entry of Order of Guardianship to ask the court to enter the order.
