My daughter has 3 children and we have set up a private co-guardianship between ourselves without involving the courts.
We recognize she could become ill being a single parent, be in a car accident, become unemployed etc. (she has full custody and father of children has consented to this in writing and he has 4 other children that he can barely support, so he is willing to let us do this. Two children are in their teens and one is six.)
Can one do their own co-guardianship and it be legal should something happen to her. We are not wealthy and we checked into court costs and that is too much for us to spare right now.
If we were to move out of state would it hold up anywhere in the U S?
