How can I get my nephews legally?
My sister in law has just passed away leaving 3 boys 17, 16, 14. Their father has left them home for the past 2 weeks by themselves. The house is terrible. Their utilities will be shut off shortly. The father states that they are big boys and they will be fine. I know for a fact neglect can be proven. My question is how can I get my nephews and bring them to our house in South Carolina legally. They would like for us to pick them up. I do not want them to go to foster care because I feel that will happen if my husband and I do not get them. We do not have the money to hire a lawyer. We didnt know if there was something we could do ourselves?
