I would contact a family law lawyer. Does your MIL husband also have guardianship? If he does he may be able to sign it over to you and SO. Iss there any chance that her parents will try to get her back

He does not, it was only her. It was a little bit of a strange situation to begin with.



And although they have no legal rights, I'm sure the Bio Parents will show up at the Funeral and cause drama about it. Sad to say but I dread going because it's going to be a circus.

Blah I had hoped that wasn't the case. Since we're not Married yet, I don't even know if we would have a chance and I don't want her to go to some random Foster home. She just lost her Mommy, I don't want her taken away from her whole family.

Your SO is her cousin? Blood related? I would start procedings to get guardianship ASAP before she gets put in foster care
