    Default How to Obtain Guardianship of My Nephew

    My question involves guardianship in the State of: California

    My nephew currently lives with my mother and my sister (his mother). He has no father, none stated on his birth certificate. My sister has been a drug addict and has relapsed once again. She served a year in prison, during which I took care of him. Most likely she will be heading back, since I know she has been involved in some criminal activity lately. She also goes days missing, and come backs acting as if nothing is wrong. My mother takes care of him now, but I would like to take guardianship of my 4 year old nephew. I feel that in the long run he would be much better with me, so he can have structure and consistency in his life. How can I get started with this? Do you have any suggestions for me? I appreciate your help.

    Forms and instructions to petition for guardianship of a minor are here. It's going to be easiest for you if the child is in your care when you file the petition, whether that's because mom is in jail or because mom has otherwise agreed to let you care for him.
