Thank you for your question

My name is Clare

I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first

How old is your granddaughter and why do you wish to adopt her?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My granddaughter is 4yrs old I have looked after her from birth, her mother lives with us and don't really do anything for her daughter she has tried to commit fraud against me. I have a residence order and if I don't do what she says she always threaten to do a runner with her daughter. I have my granddaughter welfare to consider her mum sleeps all day and demands money as she has nothing coming in.
