I am a US born citizen. I moved from another country where I was living with my parents for about 7 years. I moved to Florida last August and am ready to go to college this August. My mother lives halfway across the world but we obtained a Power of Attorney guardianship letter. Apparently this is not enough for the state university I want to attend and I simply cannot afford out of state tuition. I will not be 18 until next year May. How do I go about obtaining legal temporary/permanent guardianship and which one would be best for me?
