Hi! I'm Lisa and I've been an attorney for 21 years. I am happy to try to answer your questions as best I can. I understand that this can be very stressful. I will try to be as specific as possible.
Just a few things to note upfront…JustAnswer is just a legal information site.
We do not provide representation and no attorney-client relationship is formed.
You may get a prompt for a phone call, that is sent by the system and not by me, if you do not wish a call PLEASE ignore it.
The easiest path towards your becoming the guardian to a child in your life is to have the parents of the child grant you guardianship. They can provide you with a written statement wherein they state that they have vested you with all of the rights, duties and privileges of a guardian over their child.
This link has the form and additional information for you to review...
My apologies...I am a US attorney I will opt out you need a Canadian lawyer I am a US attorney
Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** will be working on your question today and I am looking forward to our conversation.
Please note that I am working from my computer and not actually texting. If you don’t answer back for a while I may not be online when you do but I will never desert you and will check back often. As well, as I am working from home it is possible that I will be interrupted but I will always return back as soon as I can.
Finally, although the site offers a call option I personally do not take calls but just work online. Some find this confusing as it looks like the offer is coming from me but that is just how the site presents the offer and it really isn’t coming from me. Some of the other experts do take calls and so you are very welcome to request a call on this post and an expert may take it. They will have the benefit of reading our exchange which should work out very well for everyone involved!
I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.
In most cases the school will agree to take a signed agreement between you and your adult daughter. So check that out first and if they require a court order then you will need to retain a lawyer but it won't be that expensive because you'll be able to get that order on consent.
Does that help as a starting point?
Thank you for trusting us to help you here at JustAnswer. If you would like to ask me new questions please start a new post and if you do if you say “This is only for Debra” I will be sure to give your post top priority.
