Me and my sons were in an accident in march we recieved a tettelment from our insurence company for bodily injury. When I went to cash the checks the bank told me I would have to go to court and have a judge grant me guardianship over my Boys. First of all why? I gave birth to them. Doesn't that give me the gaurdianship? According to the judge who peoside over gaurdian issues it doesn't. If it doesn't then what is a birth certificate for? She talked to me like I was an unfit Mother. And that only she knew what was best where my Boys were concerned. What would you do if you were in this situation?

that is strange Ive never heard about that happening before. Where are you living? I dont know what I would do. I think I would throw some pictures of my stomach being cut open & my child being taken out & ask them if thats proof enough? But then again thats just me.

I live in KY. I think its crazy that we are haveing to go through this. My husband has been laid off for a while and we were counting on this money to be able to buy our sons christmas gifts. Now we have to wait until a judge tell us something that we aready know we are the Boys parents. They made me feel like I was the worst person in the country. Thanks for your reply

You really don't have much choice if you want to cash the check. Whatever you do, though, don't argue with a judge, especially the one that decides on guardianship. If you are nice, it's almost 100% certain that it will be awarded to you. It's just a legal issue.

I know your right. Its not really the issue to me that this has to be done its mainly the fact that the judge was so rude about it. I took my Boys for the meeting in close chambers with her and she asked them things that really bothered me. She asked them if I set stupid rules. Of course my 10 year old said yes he told her I wouldn't let them play until they did their homework.LOL But I think she was looking for a reason not to allow guardianship. My 12 year old looked at her and said my mommy is the best she makes sure we have what we need and if she had the money we could have one thing we really want for a change. She asked him what he really wanted and he told her new XBOX. and some new cloths. I myself don't think that is an unreasonable reply.

OMG! When I had to do that, the judge didn't even talk to my kids!!! I didn't know about that. What a judge! I can see why you were upset. In my case I think the judge just called around and checked out referenced.
