Guardianship for Minors

Minor Guardianship is a legal process where a child under the age of 18 years old is appointed a guardian to make decisions on their behalf and/or manage their financial affairs. A minor needs guardian of his or her 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 his or her estate when he or she has, or is about to receive, any money or property with a value of at least $5,000 (such as from insurance, from an inheritance, or from the settlement of a personal injury case).
