How to fight for legal guardianships in the U.S.
As a child, I never had any legal guardians.
I was in a family home with the parents, and the grandparents and siblings all had legal guardians at one point.
At age 16, I was living in a different house and the grandmother, my aunt, took me in.
But it was always a struggle to get a court order.
That was the first time I went to court, and it took more than three years of trying to get court documents.
When I finally did get a legal guardian, I spent more than $150,000 on it.
I had to prove that I was legally allowed to live with my aunt and grandmother, and that my father was legally authorized to have custody of me.
That wasn’t easy.
I didn’t have an attorney.
I also didn’t know how to fight against a court case in court.
When my aunt died suddenly, I had no money to pay for a lawyer and I didn�t have the resources to pay someone to fight the case.
It was the last thing I wanted to do.
I knew that the court would just put me back in the same situation.
It didn�s make sense to fight in court, but I was scared to do anything about it.
The court process was incredibly stressful.
I wasn’t prepared for what it was going to look like when I got to court.
I never even got to see my aunt or grandmother.
So the last time I saw them was at a funeral.
I still had the same problems I had with my father.
It wasn�t until I started having nightmares about my dad that I decided to seek legal guardians for my daughter.
But the first court date wasn�ts until September, and I have to say that it was a very, very hard time for me.
I got my name changed and I went back to court to fight my case.
I thought I was going home.
But then, the next day, I woke up and it was like, Wait a minute.
I can�t get in here because there is no court date.
I called my aunt.
She had her own lawyer and was willing to take me in court on a non-disclosure agreement.
My father is a very private person, so I knew what to expect.
I just had to wait.
It took me about a year to get the documents, but after that, I knew I had a legal right to live in my aunt�s house.
It is very important to understand that the only person who can change your legal guardians status is your child’s legal guardian.
That means your daughter.
