How Does Guardianship Work?

When a child's parents become unable to care for them, another family member may be able to seek guardianship to prevent the child from going to the foster parent. Guardianship may also be necessary for adults in some circumstances, such as elderly individuals or adults with disabilities. A guardian is appointed by the family court and given responsibility for taking care of the individual. This will include the same responsibilities a parent has, such as providing for them financially, giving them a safe place to live, and making legal decisions on their behalf. Depending on the circumstances, the child's parents may retain some parental rights or contact.

A guardianship may be required for a child if the parents:

  • Have a serious physical or mental illness
  • Have substance abuse issues
  • Have a history of child abuse
  • Are deceased
