need to dissolve legal guardianship
I live in IL. My mother took legal guardianship of my child back in Feb. of 1993. I have no criminal record, and have not had rights taken from me to the child. I was just young, and wanted better medical insurance for my child than I could offer at that time. My mother has since completely taken over my child's life. I have married since, have two other children, and one on the way. I wish to have this guardianship dissolved, since my mother has always stood in the way of any relationship my child and her step dad and siblings might have. Currently, my husband and I are separated, for financial reasons, primarily. I live with my mother and daughter, who she has guardianship of, and my other two kids live with their dad and his parents. He is currently going to school for computers, and will be done in Dec. of 2002. We plan on getting back together as soon as possible, and building a good life for our children. However, my mother stands in the way at every turn. Also, my mother refuses to work, and is no longer supporting my child financially. In fact, even though I'm receiving disablility and SSI payments, hopefully just temporarily, I am currently supporting my daughter, as well as my mother, and have cancelled checks to prove it. What is the easiest way to get this guardianship dissolved? My mother has overstepped her boundaries far too many times.
