This is a very complex problem because of the details you have described. You really need a specialist to provide you with an appropriate answer for your situation.

Your best bet is to contact your County Bar Association for a referral to a local Michigan attorney.  Attorneys will often give 1/2 to one hour of free advice or provide a consultation at a very low cost.  You can also contact the State Bar of Michigan in Lansing and ask them for a referral.

Lastly, try the link below.  It provides information of Michigan guardianship law.  This may give you some ideas how the law applies to your situation.
