Obtaining legal guardianship of a minor child in the state of Oregon. Contested by parent and not contested

Asked over 5 years ago - Oregon

My friend has temporary custody of her neice. The childs mother granted her 1year. I am trying to find information on how to legally gain full guardianship of this child until she is 18 in the state of Oregon. The child is currently 14yrs of age. The mother lives in Nevada. The idea that the mother could change her mind at any minute is causing grief for the child. Any advice or direction on how to legally get guardianship would be great.

    Answered . The mother has full control. There is nothing that you can do. The mother can come and claim her child anytime she desires. Sorry.
