My child's mother is deceased her grandmother wants to take her because I don't do what she says but I take care of my daughter and now I want custody
Were you and the mother married? If not, have you been to court to establish your paternity of the child?
A fit parent has priority for custody over all non-parents, but if you weren't married to the child's mother you need to file suit to establish your rights.
