Dawn, Expert

Good morning. Thank you for using JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will be the attorney assisting you today. I'm sorry to hear that you have legal troubles going on. I understand that it can be frustrating dealing with the legal system. Hopefully we can get these matters resolved for you today.

Please note that you may receive a telephone call request from the website automatically. I do not have any control over that nor do I participate in telephone calls on the website. You can disregard these requests. Please note that if you do wish to speak with someone by telephone, I can opt out so that another expert who is available by telephone can log in to assist you.

Also, please note that I strive to respond to you as soon as possible. Sometimes I step away from my desk or I am offline (despite it showing that I am online). Please be patient and note that I will return to answer your questions as soon as I am able to.

ANSWER: Not necessarily. The mother would have to prove that she is now fit to care for the children. You will have to file an objection to the petition to terminate guardianship (assuming she has filed one) and attend any court hearing so you can advocate as to why the guardianship is still necessary.

I hope this information helps you. Please let me know if you have any other questions or need further clarification. I'm happy to help or further assist however I can.

This answer is provided for informational purposes only and shall not be construed as legal advice nor does it establish an attorney-client relationship. You should consult with a local attorney in your jurisdiction for legal advice.

Thank you for using JustAnswer and thank you for allowing me to assist you today. Please take a moment to rate our session if you are satisfied with the assistance that I have provided. If you have any issues, please contact Customer Service. Have a great day and stay safe.

ANSWER: You're welcome. Yes. You can also contact the court to ask whether the petition has been filed if she has not yet served you with a copy.
