Q. Why shouldn't I have gotten guardian ship of my husband I wasn't in a nursing home then
A: It isn't possible to answer with any degree of specificity why you were not granted guardianship without seeing the court file. This is a situation where you need to schedule an appointment with an attorney with the paperwork you have.
Q. Do you think it's doable for me to get guardian ship of my husband away from his brother and sister
A: I am not licensed in Virginia, but I am licensed in North Carolina and several other states and will answer based on how North Carolina operates. Realistically, you'll need an attorney in each state or an attorney licensed in both states to do this.

In general, transferring guardianship from one state to another is a difficult process (even for attorneys). The fact that you're presently in a nursing home/assisted living home makes it more difficult for *you* to become guardian and that may be why you were not appointed guardian in the first place. It's not exactly a legal presumption, but it's the norm for a spouse to be considered the best guardian for a person (barring some inability or unwillingness of said spouse). If the two of you have any children together, it may be a good idea to ask one of the children to attempt to become your husband's guardian. ... Read More
Q. Why would my stepsister send me and my siblings a personal property exemption form ....keep all his personal stuff
A: There are a couple forms she could be trying to get you to sign. It sounds like she's trying to get you to waive your inheritance rights. If your father's wife never adopted you and never made a will, realistically the stepsister gets her property. Why she's trying to get you to sign is strange and you can certainly choose not to sign.
