    Default Guardianship of Grandchild

    My question involves grandparents rights in the State of: Texas.

    My 18 yr old stepson has a 7 month old baby. The mother of the baby is 19 yrs old. My stepson is not listed on the birth certificate, but we had our own paternity test done to see if he was the father(he is). The baby lives with his mother in her parents' home, but now she says she wants to let the baby live with us. She does not have a job and is not in school with no GED. My stepson is away at college. If she's willing to give us guardianship of the baby, what do we have to do to get this done? Will my stepson have to agree also, even if he has not established legal paternity?

    You will need to start with establishing legal paternity. Go from there. It's a long road. You also can get a temp order via the court for the grandson.

    How do I obtain a temp order? Is this something that I will need to hire a lawyer for, or can I do it myself?
