My wife and I have been legal guardians of our grandson for 5 years. Guardianship was granted by a California court where his mother lives, if that makes any difference. In 5 years his mother has not called or sent a letter or card and has not given any court-ordered support. She is married to a man who is accused of having abused her son. Our grandson's father has given court-ordered support very irregularly but has never attempted to contact him.
My wife and I would like to adopt our grandson. Even though we are his legal guardians, do we have to get permission from his parents? What do we have to do?
