    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . I will offer you only some suggestions or things to consider and no legal advice or opinion - I hope it's helpful:
    (1) Have you discussed your thoughts and feelings with your DCF case worker, grandmother, and mother? (2) If there are documents or court orders pertaining to your guardianship, etc., you may find some information or provisions that may offer you something helpful. (3) How long until your 18th birthday?
