My 19 year old, expecting any day, daughter has been arrested yet again for theft. She's currently on probation for theft & bodily harm while under the influence. The last time she was before the judge he told her she had no more chances. She would go to prison. So here we are......... literally days away from her delivering her first child, her facing 3 years in a state prison & her boyfriend is an illegal. She wants us to take temporary custody of the baby if she goes to prison. My questions are these:
Temporary guardianship vs Full guardianship
I know we can not get any help through the welfare system as far as Medicaid or Taniff is concerned. My husband is checking into getting the baby covered under his insurance at work.
What about claiming the baby on our taxes as a dependent?
My concern is when DD is released she will show up & just take the baby without having the things in place that she needs.
We have very little time to prepare for any of this. She goes to court to be sentenced on 2/1.....she's scheduled for a c-section on 2/11.
Can anyone help me?!?!!?
