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.

We assist with all aspects of guardianship for a minor, from deciding whether guardianship is necessary, to the court appointment process, to ongoing representation of a guardian. Contact us to learn more!
