Anyone have any information on filing for guardianship of my 7 month old grand baby? My daughter & idiot boyfriend just got out of jail yesterday. She texted me at 6:30am to please come take the baby "again" this time because boyfriend was sick & she had to go to her CalWorks program. Of course I came & got the baby. Didn't hear all day from my daughter which is unusual. Then I get a call from the landlady (living in this woman's RV for 2 months - after finally leaving our home - the baby had lived here since day 1) she tells me the cops are there because boyfriend is out of control threatening to kill them, burn down their house & oh yeah he's hitting my daughter! (Who by the way "fell" last week & had a scrape under her eye & bruising on her forearms - my daughter the ex - scholarship athlete - "fell"). They had been out drinking all day & "totalled" my daughters car & are still drunk. They had stolen my husband's fathers gold coin ring back in October. We did nothing because we were told nothing would really happen to him but my daughter would be charged with a felony, & we didn't want to ruin her future. But now the only way to protect her was to press charges! I call my daughter who tells me everyone else nothing is wrong bring her her baby. I said well, it's been a rough day how about I bring her home tomorrow. Boyfriend becomes enraged & starts screaming he's going to kill me! Eventually they are hauled away. I had the baby 6 days/nights. She called everyday from jail I want to come home however when pressed about the theft, still defiant & justified! We tell her the only way to come home is to cut all ties with boyfriend. She agrees, but needs 1 more day...fine. calls the next night to be picked up. I go get her, oh yeah she also accused my husband of rape too, which is why I had to go get her. Bring her home, baby is thrilled, next morning it starts. Have to talk/text him how to get his stuff cause landlady just met him in court this AM with a restraining order! landlady has now had enough because he wants to fight the TRO so now my daughter has no place to live except my home, no car, no car seat, etc. She gets a call that she has a P/T job starting Tuesday, will we please drive her back & forth 20 miles 1 way? We explain yes, but she also needs a bus schedule. We have lives too. All the while plotting with boyfriend to get out & find a place to live together again. She gets upset, my husband gets upset & now she's just going to leave! I tell her I'm calling CPS because she has nowhere to go & no car seat to protect the baby. Naturally she finds a gullible friend to come get them with an old car seat that apparently the sheriff thinks is just fine. Now I have no real idea where they are & the baby is in danger from what I can only hope is just alcoholics with severe rage & no money! I don't know what to do. File for custody or guardianship? How do I "find" them to serve them? We also have another issue that our landlord stopped paying their mortgage & we have to find a new home by mid-April! Nothing even remotely acceptable in the area & this is my other daughter's Sr. Year & her track season is almost upon us! (She is hoping for a scholarship). Sorry for the very long story, I'm sure I've left a lot out. But this started 2/5/2015 & it's 2/11/2015. Anybody know what I should do? We are not rich & cannot afford an attorney. Please help if you have any information. CPS said I really need to file otherwise it could be said I knew of a potential hazard & did nothing. I don't want to raise my grandchild, I want her parents to be normal & do it. But I can't let her be in this horrid lifestyle of constant yelling, cursing, drinking & God only knows what else. And I have been living with her or at least babysitting her almost all her life, I cannot let her go to strangers! Please help!!!
