A: You need to read the paper that "signed over guardianship" to grandma and see what it says about terminating the agreement. If it is silent then you may need to seek the court's help of grandma refuses to return the child.

A: Was the "guardianship" done in South Carolina? If so, you will need to get advice from a lawyer licensed to practice in South Carolina.
