My question involves guardianship in the State of: Indiana
I have a 14 month old grandchild. I talked with an attorney about getting guardianship of her-he said it sounds like I have a strong case. She has lived with me since she was born except for 5 weeks last year. I have supported her, her dad doesn't pay any support and he just quit his job. My daughter doesn't work, continues to make bad decisions for herself, which now reflects onto my grandchild. I don't want to hurt my daughter but I do want to provide a stable, safe, loving home for my grandchild.
What would some of the reasons I wouldn't get guardianship?
