I asked my mom to take my daughter while I got my life together. I"ll just be honest and say that I had enough sense to know that I couldn't raise her at the time. So my mom took her and I gave her temporary guardianship.
Legally, my mom is my daughter's legal guardian. She does not have custody. The courts are not involved nor is child services. This was a family decision.
I lived in Florida when my mom took her to Chicago to live with her. It's been two years.
I don't think I will have a problem getting her back but my mom can be difficult. We don't get along and when I'm not doing things exactly the way she wants them done (i.e. being controlling) she threatens me with keeping my daughter.
I now live in Colorado. If it came down to it and I wanted her back but my mom wanted to give me a hard time, what would my course of action be?
