So when I say BRAND new, I mean since Monday. She's not even a "foster" child. She is a friend of my step sons that needed a place to go. i'm not sure if that even qualifies me as a foster parent BUT I need some advice...
She is 15 and here with her mom's consent. Her mother is willing to sign something stating that I have guardianship, but the school is telling my husband and I that this isn't good enough to change the school records. The issue is that I need to be able to take her to the doctor, write her a note if she's late, sign her permission forms, etc. Any idea what I should do in order to make this possible and make me her legal guardian (live in Ontatio, Canada) without her mother giving up legal custody?
