I am 72 and have legal guardianship pf my great grand daughter who is 11. I have had her since she was infant. She was neglected. CPS was never involved. She calls me mom. I love her. I'm wanting to sell my house and relocate to Nashville, TN to be near my 44 y/o daughter who is the aunt to my great grand daughter. She has been very involved financially, visiting, calling all of child's life. The father of child has been unlocatable all this time and the mother is around but exact address unknown. Since the child is not in the state system and never has (all issues of legal nature done privately through atty). What are the easiest (hopefully cheapest) way to get permission to leave Calif. I was told I cannot relocate the child (which is ridiculous since both parnets have abandoned the child in every way). I also don't want to wake up the abusive absent parent who has never supported this child in any way. Please help! Thanks. Jennie in Sacramento, CA.
