Is there anything i can do to bring him home right now!!!!

Answer: You may want to speak with an attorney to see what rights you have and if the papers you wrote and signed are legal to guardianship. If you have not filed guardianship papers, you may want to go to https://www.superiorcourt.maricopa.gov/SuperiorCourt/Self-ServiceCenter/Forms/JuvenileCases/index.asp for the forms. The site gives you all the information and paperwork you will need to file for guardianship.  You may want to see if you qualify for free or reduced legal help at http://www.azlawhelp.org/accessToJustice.cfm
