The grandmother of my sister's son has filed for full legal guardianship/custody. There is a current restraining order against my sister and the grandmother...is my sister allowed to appear in court without violating the order? She was not legally served regarding the guardianship, as the grandmother stated that my sisters address was unknown, which is not true. I feel the grandmother is doing this out of spite, which is also why the restraining order is in effect...ie, she is purposely doing this to gain control, so my sister will not be able to see her own son. The grandmother has not returned my sister's son since his birthday party, 3 months ago - and now with he restraining order, my sister cannot get her son back...there is a court hearing set for August for guardianship. Please tell me what action or legal forms need to be filed in response.
