The person who requests guardianship files a "motion for temporary custody" with the local family court. Some courts have forms you can fill out or download. Otherwise, one has to draft the motion.
An attorney is not required for family court. However, if the adult who is making this arrangement for you is unable to figure this out, s/he (personally) needs one.
