I live in Ohio and I am moving to SC, my two teenage children do not want to go with me. How do I go about giving custody or guardianship to a family member?

You personally cannot give guardianship or custody of children to another, only a court can. If the family member wants to apply for guardianship he or she could do so by an Application for Guardianship filed in the local probate court. It's also possible to get temporary custody through the Juvenile Court, but one would have to allege that the children are neglected and thus the need for temporary custody.
