How do I obtain legal custody of my 15 year old niece?

You cannot become their guardian without the parental rights of both parents being terminated either voluntarily or by a court.
However, both parents can sign a special form of power of attorney allowing you to take the children to the doctor, enroll them in school, etc. This is revocable at will.
