    Default Living with Grandparents

    Did your grandparents go to court to get a legal guardianship over you? If so, your father should consult a family lawyer about your situation. If not, and you are just living with your grandparents because they took you in after your mother died, then despite your living arrangement your father probably has custody by virtue of operation of law.

    It would probably be a good idea, one way or the other, for your father to consult a family lawyer and confirm what is going on.
