my sister is my guardian - January 22nd 2009, 12:56 PM

My mom has hurt me since i was a little girl so my older sister fought to be my guardian. the thing is that this is only temporary. in march we have to go back to court to see the judges final decision. i really hope my sister gets to stay as my guardian. I'm really worried that she might not be.

Hey there, welcome to TeenHelp (assuming you're actually new!)

I'm so sorry to hear about what has happened with your mom. I hope, for your sake, that things work out how you want them. As long as your sister is able to provide for you, the courts tend to favor family members.



Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us.
I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind

Im really sorry that your mom has hurt you so much. But im glad to here that you now live with your sister. I know you have to go back to court to see what the final decission is. I dont know how your mom hurt you, but I dont know that the court is going to look and see if your mom is capable of taking care of you, and see how well your sister has cared for you and that she provids everything she needs to. i really hope that you get to stay with your sister.


Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

I'm so sorry to hear about your situation. I can only imagine how difficult this is for you and how important this court date is for you. Just hang in there and hope for the best. I don't know how your sister's situation is going to go over with the judge, but I really hope that s/he sees and understands that your mother has hurt you and that you'd probably be much happier with your sister. They're going to look at who is more capable of taking care of you and making sure that you have everything you need.

I really hope that this works out in your favor. Hang in there.

Hi there,

The best thing to do is just to wait it out. I'm sure the courts will weigh both sides and find out what is best for you.
I hope everything turns out well.

Nat.

Hi hun. I think the courts will take into account what you want more than anything. Your sister might have a criminal record and a baby but that means nothing. she is a good person, you want to be with her, she looks after her baby well - these are all things in her favour.

The courts job is to put you where they think you will be safe and happy. From reading your short story on here, that is obviously with your sister. I'm sure that it what the courts will decide too. Please try not to worry. They really do take into account what you want, just be sure to tell them how much you want to live with your sister and how your mother scares you.

Sorry to hear your going through this, I had to go through custody battles with my mum and dad and its never nice so I can't even begin to imagine how hard it must be for you. If you ever need a chat just pm me, I'll be here for you x x
