For minor children:
When it is necessary and convenient, and in the best interests of a child, a Court can appoint a legal guardian.
- There are several reasons why it may be necessary or convenient to be appointed as guardian of a minor.
- Enrolling a minor child in school
- Authorizing proper care for the minor child– including day care, health care coverage and medical treatment, and food and shelter
- Receiving state benefits for a child living in your home, over whom you do not already have legal custody
For adults under legal disability:
- Guardianships involve court supervised management of the person and/or property of special needs children over age 21 or an incapacitated adult.
- A legal guardian can be either a limited decision-maker or an all-purpose decision maker.
Guardianships and capacity issues can be emotional and stressful times.
