Legal Question

Asked on: 7/16/13, 9:10 am

In a situation where a temp guardianship was given to maternal grandparents because of mother and fathers incarceration, the temp guardianship has been in place for five years and now the father has cleaned up his life, has had the same job for four years, stable residence, two vehicles (both run and are suitable for children) has 3 other children living in the home and passed a hair test for the court. Now the problem, when the first court hearing came the opposing lawyer was all about getting the divorce settled and the settlement reguarding the minor child was left open. That meant I went to juvenile court and filled for removal of the guardianship and asked that the child be returned to her father. The guardian opposed. Now to my understanding because the divorce is final if the temp guardianship is removed it will go back to mother and father even tho she's not asking for the child. Is this true?
