In July 2021, the mother of a 14-year-old boy and a 16-year-old boy left them with her cousin and fiance. She has since disappeared and cannot be contacted and the second cousin and fiancé petitioned for guardianship of the minors. Both kids consented. They had not been enrolled in school for years when they moved in with the petitioner, but she immediately started home schooling them. The 16-year-old’s dad has not been actively involved in his care and the 14-year-old’s father is unknown. At this time, these teenagers are in need of an attorney to represent them in the guardianship proceedings to ensure their wishes and legal rights are communicated. Next Hearing(s): No Hearing at this time. Citation Hearing on 9/20/22 was vacated due to lack of service.
