The Legal Process

Guardianship is offered in order to allow a person the right to care for, and make legal decisions for, someone he or she loves. Legal guardianship is available for minors or adults with special needs. When a minor is involved, it is also referred to as custodianship or conservatorship. Unlike adoption, the termination of parental rights is not necessary to obtain guardianship, but the guardian still gets all of the legal rights that a parent would have. This process is handled through probate court.

When Is Guardianship Available?

Guardianships are not automatically available. Generally, there needs to be a serious situation in which a parent cannot care for a child for a period of time, such as a parent being in trouble with the law or fighting at home. If you are considering becoming a guardian, speak with an experienced and compassionate attorney who can help you understand your rights and obligations under the law.
