Guardianship for Minors
Guardianship of a minor is a legal process where a court appoints a guardian for a child under the age of 18 to make health decisions on their behalf and/or manage their financial affairs. A minor needs a guardian of the person when the minor has no living parents, when the parents cannot be found, or when the parents are unable or unwilling to care for the minor.
A minor needs a guardian of the estate when he or she has, or is about to receive, significant money (including an inheritance) or property.
