My sister recently died leaving behind three girls ages 20, 17 and 12. The father is also deceased. My sister always indicated she wanted me or our other sister to assume custody of her kids in the event of her death. However, her eldest child is convinced she will get custody of her two younger sisters. We have explained to her that she not only doesn't need this responsibility (she is a single mom on welfare with 3 kids of her own) but she is incapable of it. None of us are sure how we go about getting started with the paperwork, etc, needed to transfer custody of the minor children to either myself or my other sister. We do not want the State to become involved and think we can do this without the need for a legal battle. Where do we start?
