Re: limited guardianshipmy twins are 17 and will be 18

It sounds like she has the court order and you do not. She can get the police involved and have them returned if they go to your place. Even if they turn 18, if they are impaired they still may have her as a guardian. Since you allowed this to go on for so long, you will have difficulty having the guardianship transferred to you. If you want to pursue this route, you will definitely need a good lawyer. William S. Stern 248-353-9400
