Me and my childrens father signed temp gaurdianship papers for HIS mother to be their care provider until (we) me- get a stable living enviornment and a steady income or (he) is released from prison. Which ever comes first. And its been a little over 6 months and since i signed those papers the grandmother (temp gaurdian) had flipped the script on me. I barely see my girls, she wont let me take them away from her house, so when i spend time with my boys on the weekend they have to miss out on seeing their sisters and everytime i do visit my 3 yr old just cries in pure misery to come with me. And it breaks my heart that i cant just take her. Is there anyway i can get a modification to the original order and add in there my right to visitation. I go months without seeing them and it breaks my heart.
No one who hasn't seen the order and knows all the background can predict or suggest an outcome. Sit down with a lawyer to discuss options.
If my answer does help you, please consider marking it helpful, or a best answer. In answering your question I am basing my answer on the limited information here, and more information is likely needed to properly and fully answer, but hopefully the answer helps. Please know that in answering I am not your lawyer and am only providing general information. To retain a lawyer you need to enter into a written retainer with the lawyer (and you have not hired me simply because I answered something here). AVVO has useful tools to contact the lawyers you see on AVVO. (Please note that my office does NOT presently handle new bankruptcy cases, criminal cases, traffic tickets, appeals, juvenile court matters, DFCS cases, or landlord-tenant cases and although I have done contested custody matters for decades I'm semi-retired from those). Please be aware I am licensed only in Georgia, so an answer in another state may be different. You should not rely on online questions as a final legal answer or a "how to" and need to sit down with a lawyer to get an answer to safely rely on. Many legal cases have vital deadlines that you may miss with delay, so please be aware of that. Now here's the "legalese" we lawyers need to add: Please do not construe anything here to make you a client of Glen Ashman. Any information in this communication is for discussion purposes only, and is not offered as legal advice (and only applies in Georgia). There is no right to rely on the information contained in this answer and no attorney-client relationship is formed. Nothing here is tax-advice. To ensure compliance with IRS Circular 230, any U.S. federal tax advice provided in this communication is not intended or written to be used, and it cannot be used by the recipient or any other taxpayer (i) for the purpose of avoiding tax penalties that may be imposed on the recipient or any other taxpayer, or (ii) in promoting, marketing or recommending to another party a partnership or other entity, investment plan, arrangement or other transaction addressed herein. If the contents of this answer discuss debts or bankruptcy, this office is required to advise the recipient that the US Congress has designated our office as a debt relief agency that is authorized to assist people in filing bankruptcy.
I’m betting you did not discuss any of this with a lawyer before you did this. Am I right? You may be in for quite a battle if it can be shown the kids are better off with her than you.
