    Question How to Turn Temporary Guardianship of a Minor Into Permanent Guardianship

    My question involves a child custody case from the State of: North Dakota.

    My sister has given me temporary guardianship of my 3 year old niece. My sister is willing to give me permanent legal guardianship of my niece, so my question is how can we turn a temporary guardianship into a legal permanent guardianship with out having to involve social services or having outrageous legal fees from a lawyer? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    The father has never been in the child's life and is not on the birth certificate.

    Doesn't matter. The father has a say so and has rights. The father would need served as would any other potential fathers -- So the guy you believe is father plus John Doe. Then if this man is proven to be the father, he would have the right to fight for his child.
