    Default How to Get Guardianship

    I'm in Atlanta, Georgia. I was wanting to find out how my father can get guardianship of 2 children. The children were adopted by my father's girlfriend of 7 years. She died last year and no family member has temporary or legal custody of the children. The children are still living with my father and I believe his girlfriend's sister is getting the social security checks and telling my father also. No one else is taking responsibility for the children. I need to know what steps he can take to get guardianship.

    Default Re: How to Get Guardianship

    The Georgia probate courts website indicates,
    Quote Quoting Minor Guardianships
    Probate courts have jurisdiction over the appointment and supervision of guardians of the property of minor children. Guardians of the property of minors also must file an inventory of assets and annual financial accountings with the probate court. Probate courts may also appoint guardians or temporary guardians of the persons of minor children in certain circumstances.
