I've had guardianship of my grandson since 2015. His mother, my daughter is now taking me to court to gain guardianship of him.
She was deemed unfit and unable to care for her child. She still remains unable to care for child full time.
The rules of civil procedure (e.g. how to issue a subpoena) can be complicated, especially when overlaid on domestic relations or guardianship law. In this case you would be best served to find a lawyer in your area who handles guardianship of minors and/or child custody actions. You should be able to find such an attorney here on AVVO. It is really critical that you have a lawyer who knows this area of practice so that things are done correctly. If you cannot afford legal counsel, consider trying to find legal aid. You can google this, but I found this site in my first search: https://www.masslegalhelp.org/ . Good luck with this.
