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 maternal grandmother get full custody if mother dies?

Generally, in the United States, biological parents are always favored for custody even if the parents were not married. Unless the father is deemed unfit the court will favor him for full custody if he wants full custody.The court would require the father's consent to the appointment of the grandmother as legal guardian. If the father refuses to consent and requests custody then she must petition the probate court for guardianship. She must provide compelling evidence that the father is unfit and her guardianship would be in the best interest of the child. The court would appoint a guardian ad litem to study and evaluate the situation and report back to the judge. The grandmother must show that although she thinks the child would be better off living with her, she knows the child should have a good relationship with her father and she will do everything in her power to encourage that parent-child relationship. The judge would render a decision after hearing all the testimony and reviewing the report of the guardian ad litem. This is a serious situation and the grandmother mother should consult with an attorney who specializes in custody issues.
