My question involves guardianship in the States of: Florida & North Carolina.
My 17 year old sister has moved in with me and my husband in NC. She moved from Florida after our father was in an auto accident. He cannot work because of his injuries and was evicted from their home. He is currently living with another sister who is unable to accomodate our minor sister. Our father agreed to my sister moving in with us, although I don't know if he will allow us to take guardianship. In addition, he has years of unpaid taxes (which I am not getting involved with) so he might not be willing to enter into any legal proceedings at all. Our mother passed away several years ago.
Can you give me information regarding establishing guardianship, both with and without my father's consent?
Thank you for your assistance.
