My sister filed for emergency temporary guardianship, not because of health issues, but she wants full control. She is refusing my rights to talk on the phone to her and won’t let mom come to my house. She tells me she is acting under advisement of her attorney.

I get ya, probably verbally abusive too? I would suggest looking up the guardianship responsibilities in your state, state laws, and statutes. Contact the county clerk of court, you may even be able to pull up the actual case to see who the lawyers are. Contact ward's attorney. Request to be interested person before family member obtains permanent guardianship. Become a member of aaapg. Read, read, read, watch YouTube lawyers discussing guardianship, etc. Now, in FL, guardians are not to interfere with wards contacting friends/family members, unless ward gets too emotional. Some guardians even charge to let family members or friends visit. It is a racket. There's also conflict of interest that may be able to terminate your family member's guardianshi, but, you would have to look at particular state laws. And if you have grounds to have courts remove family member and put public guardian in their place, or, you may want to get paperwork together and petition for guardianship to be transferred to you, but. Either way, Have witnesses at hand

It may depend on the action awarded with the temp guardianship. Or as mentioned above it may include restrictions. You need a lawyer to explain this. Or the judge at the hearing.

My husbands uncle had a stroke and is in rehab. His son and niece got temporary guardianship of him. They are allowed to restrict whoever they want from even seeing him, legally. I don't know if that helps, or if it applies where you live.
Your cousin is exactly right, Give it to God. Pray A lot!
I too will be praying for you and your Mom.

I have been the bigger person, reached outti her mote than i cam count! I don’t tell momorket it worry her, but my sister uses her, often . Manipulates her all the time. Talked my mom into buying new false teeth for my brother and his live in, after they lost their teeth from Meth use. I told her many times we need to talk like normal families, but she maintains that texting and emails are sufficient. Absolutely no personal connection. So sad to think control is the answer. Our cousin sent an email to us, i felt a lot she said was roght, let personal aside and give it to God. She won’t even reply....

Hope your mom is not being used as a pawn in this sibling dispute. Have you tried sending sister a letter and trying to work things out oe meet together with a mediator to help you both work out joint care for mom?

I’d hate u both to spend a lot of legal fees for lawyers where there will still be hard feelings and mom in the middle sensing that tension.

If u could be the bigger person and reach out to sister at least u would know you did all u could to reconcile.

In the meantime send cards to mom. Offer to take mom to lunch or meet mom at senior center or offsite.

Good luck.

Sorry no one directly answered your question. We are not lawyers so we cannot give you a "legal" answer ...just our opinions, understanding, and feelings about the situation you find yourself in...sorry. I think that it would be unfair to keep any of the children away... Maybe call your lawyer or the court to ask for visitation rights.

I am taking her to court. thats when she said I couldn’t even talk to her until the hearing, a month away!
Yes absolutely ready to take on my mom, I love her and would do anything for her. 
None of you answered my question, can she do that legally tech take me from her because I am challenging her. She was keeping her from me before they may keep around weekends only. But now is complete shut up off.

 My understanding of a guardianship is to make medical decisions and help with finances, not to keep them from their other family members because of their own greed and things of happened in the past between the two sisters, me and her. I think she’s overstepping her boundaries.
