I have temporary legal custody notarized by the mother of my granddaughter Age 5 from the state of Arkansas. We moved to Ohio 6 months ago. Ohio will not accept it to enroll her school, because it was not a court order.
I don't really want to go through the sle of getting custody and fees and hearings and all that when I could just get grandparent power of attorney. However the paperwork Ohio juvenile Court gave me says it has to be notarized in Ohio. The mother is incarcerated in a federal prison in Alabama. Can she use an Alabama power of attorney for grandparents and have it Court documented in Ohio. She was never married to the father he doesn't have any legal custody rights or residential rights and he already pays child support which I am receiving.
