    Question How to Become the Guardian of a Younger Sibling

    My question involves a person located in the state of: Oregon
    How could I become the legal guardian of my brother? He is 16, and currently living with my grandparents. My grandmother is his legal guardian. He is unhappy there. Im 18 and I want him to move in with me. He is honestly not going to be better anywhere else than with me. What steps do I need to do for this to be done? Help please!!

    You need the permission of your grandmother. I can promise you that no court is going to make an 18 year old the legal guardian of a 16 year old; it simply is not going to happen. But if your grandmother will give him permission to live with you, he can.

    No. If she's okay with him moving out, fine. He can move out. But I cannot even imagine a set of circumstances in which a court would approve the guardianship of a 16 year old being granted to an 18 year old, even if the current guardian does not object.
