Case Number: 2021-029597 (Urgent)

In Guardianship

The paternal grandmother of two children was appointed guardianship over them in February 2018. Both parents consented. The grandmother alleged the parents were homeless and on drugs and that CPS was involved. In 2019, the great grandmother filed a petition to become co-guardian to assist the grandmother. The parents did not consent and it appears they were not served. The minutes of a hearing on October 10, 2019 do not reflect that the parents were present when the co-guardianship was granted. At that hearing, the court sua sponte ordered No Contact with the parents until further order of the court. In April 2021, the great grandmother filed a motion of non-compliance, advising the court that the grandmother was allowing the minors’ parents to see the minors despite the court’s no contact order. On September 20, 2021, the court ordered an investigator to visit the minors and appointed counsel. On December 7, 2021, a hearing was held and the grandmother admitted to the father being at the home in August 2021 and allowing the father to pick up mail at the home despite the No Contact Order. On December 10, 2021, the Court issued an Order to Show Cause as to why the the grandmother should not be removed as co-guardian for not complying with the no contact order. As a result, these two children are in need of an attorney to represent their wishes and rights as a protected persons. Next Hearing(s): Show Cause Hearing on 2/2/2022 at 2:00 pm.
