I wish to inform you that if temporary guardianship was given then you can cancel your temporary guardianship and have child custody. You may inform in writing that now you cancel your temporary guardianship and thus child should be allowed to come back to you. Further if your mother in law refuses then you may take assistance of law enforcement agencies or you can have a court order. If temporary custody was given through court order then you will require modification of court order.

If the guardianship was given to her through the courts, you will have to go back through the courts to revoke it.

Why did you sign over temporary guardianship in the first place? And why do you think you are now ready to take your kids back?

Because i thought it was what was best for my children. Now I am finding that my kids are better off with me and not there. I never wanted to do it to begin with.

If the guardianship was issues through courts and the time frame has not expired on temp order yes you must use court system to get them back. If not then you can merely take them. Whatever you decide I would suggest you at least talk with a lawyer first so you know all your legal rights in this matter. many Attorneys offer free intial consultations this is where you can get that info

First, revoke the guardianship in writing. Once you have done that, you can (1) You can pick up your children with the police in tow, or (2) go to court and get a court order for her to return the children to you.

My Husband has temporary guardianship of his son who is 6 now and the BM and GM are always hollering Revoke when they don't get there way, so I got tired of it and got legal advise on how the Revoke works,

The BM can Revoke the temporary guardianship but the guardian dose not have to sign those Revoke papers there for the BM will have to take legal action and take us to court.

When you give temporary guardianship of a child who is not 18 it stays in effect till the child is 18 or if there is a end date, and or Revoked by the Bio Parents or the court if the child is not being taking care of.

The Guardian can refuse to sign those revoke papers and when that happens you have to have money for the lawyers and all that good stuff to take the person who has temporary guardianship to court then you have to prove that you are capable of taking care of your child and taking it to court don't always mean you will win your case.

You can revoke the guardianship through court but the guardian can refuse to sign and when that happens you have to get a court order and take the guardian to court. Its not as easy as it sounds sorry.
