If you have sole custody of your child then the court system saw fit to leave the father out of the custody decision. Therefore, you have every legal right to see a lawyer, go through the court system (with your grandmother present) and a judge will decide if your grandmother is healthy, fit to look after a small child (because of age) and that she gives her full consent to this action. Beware! If the court does not believe your grandmother is young enough or well enough and you go before them wanting to give up custody of your child, your child could become a ward of the court. This means the court will have the sole right to place your child within foster care and all legal rights will be taken from you. Please see a lawyer before you go any further and be sure you protect yourself.

Can a grandmother get legal custody without the father's permission?

Only through a court order. It is assumed she has the mother's consent. If the father doesn't consent the grandmother needs to petition for guardianship and then show why the father is unfit and it would be in the best interest of the child to be placed under the legal guardianship of the grandmother. She should consult with an attorney who specializes in custody issues.Only through a court order. It is assumed she has the mother's consent.
