    Default Guardianship of a Disabled Adult

    My question involves guardianship in the State of: Minnesota

    I am the legal guardain, legal conservator and step-father to a disabled adult who is unable to financially support herself. Her mother is deceased and her biological father lives out of state. Biological father legally ceased paying child support when his daughter graduated from high school. I have requested voluntary monthly support from father at a small portion of his previous court ordered amount and have been repeatedly ignored. Minnesota stat. 518.54(2) states a provision where a disabled adult may continue to receive support if unable to financial support self. The current guardainship order makes no provisions for continued support. She receives social security funds from her deceased mother that barely covers her group home room and board. She also receives medical assistance. I contribute appoximatley $5000 throughout the year to cover her expenses. Is it feasible to litigate for continued support. Thank you.

    The underlying child custody and support order were out of Minnesota?
