    Default Taking Care Of My Niece For Next School Year

    I live in Arkansas, my 11 year old niece lives in Oklahoma with parents (her mom is my sister). I am wanting her to live with me and my family for the next school year, in hopes that her grades, attitude, etc. will get better. She wants to, and if her parents will let her, what would I need to do to get it done? I mean as far as transferring schools, having (temporary) guardianship (would I need that), and things of that nature. I would appreciate any info.

    You will need to check with the public school where she would enroll, to see if they will be satisfied with an informal grant of guardianship or if they would require you to get guardianship through a court.
