A: As far as I can tell from researching this issue, a minor can only end a guardianship when they attain the age of majority, or if you can convince one of your parents to file a petition and prove, by a preponderance of the evidence, that a material change in the circumstances of the minor or the parent has occurred since the entry of the order appointing the guardian warranting removal of the guardian. They would have to convince the court that it is in your best interest to remove that guardianship.
A: Yes. If you are in agreement you can both just sign the certification and agreement by counsel. Then you go to the motion/scheduling clerk with this signed agreement to get a "prove-up" date, in which you both will need to go to court. At this time, the judge will ask you questions and then you can get divorced. I recommend you ask legal aid to put your agreement in writing so that you can present that to the court to enter on the date of your prove up.
