OK long story short my brother has two kids by his first wife and two by second wife. First wife died. Two older kids got taken away 3 years ago BC my brother got caught selling dope. They went to live with maternal grandmother. Fast forward to two months ago they decided to go back and live with their dad and step mom. My niece came over today and I could tell something was wrong and I asked her and she said she don't want to live with her daddy anymore and started crying and getting all upset. I know she's not Happy there and my heart goes out to her. Her maternal grandmother refuses to take her back because she left. My parents can't take her. I'm considering taking her in. She's almost 14. My brother is supposed to go to court December 4th to finalize the custody switch. Is there anything I can do to offer to take her myself? I'm her biological aunt. I feel in my heart this is right to do.

What was her reason for not wanting to be there?

Have you talked to your brother about this?

Talk to a lawyer at 14 she could have some say in where she leaves in some states.  Easiest way would be for dad to agree.  The first thing after getting a lawyer is you really need to find out way she doesn't want to live with her dad.
