    Default How Do I Obtain Guardianship of My Sister

    My question involves guardianship in the State of: PA
    My Mom and Stepfather adopted my niece some time ago which is now my sister. She is 16. They treat her like a criminal. This girl has done nothing. Ie: drugs, alcohol, or even sex. She spends a lot of time in my house. I am more than willing to bring her to live with us. My stepdad is drinking heavily again. My mother will not go against him and what he says goes. Even when he had my sister in a choke hold with her toes barely touching the ground a few weeks back. Do I have any legal recourse? I know there are kids with far worse circumstances, but this is my sister.

    How old are you? Has CPS been involved?

    If your mother will not consent to giving you guardianship, it will not happen.
