Georgia law permits someone to file in court as a "next friend" of a minor child if he or she has no legal guardian or other representative. Whether this applies is difficult to tell based on your description. You should consult with a family law attorney to understand whether you will be able to do this, or if there are other proceedings already under way. Please call 770-753-9995 for a no cost evaluation.
