Legal Guardianship

From custody to adoption, the importance of the care and safety of children can never be overstated. This consideration includes legal guardianship. In case neither parent can care for a child, a legal guardian is agreed upon, and their consent is required. Should they agree to the terms, they become legally responsible for a child or children in the event of both parents being unavailable. When choosing a legal guardian, you must consider their relationship with the children and the children’s future.

The need to determine legal guardianship is not always a result of a divorce or separation. Some people find this step prudent, especially if one of the parents is ill or there is only one living parent. Ensuring their children have a safe place to land in the event of an accident or incapacitation makes sense to many people. However, it is not something anyone wants to consider. While many people do not exercise this option, it is advisable, especially during a custody negotiation.

It’s best to contact a law firm to establish guardianship so the terms are clear and the children are protected. Call today to book an appointment. I’ll sit down with you and your prospective guardian to determine the responsibilities and rights of all parties involved.
