FAQ - Guardianship

What is a guardian?

A guardian exercises parental powers and responsibilities for a minor with approval of the Court but a guardian is not legally responsible for the support of the minor.

  • This process is voluntary and temporarily gives the parental rights to the guardian
  • A guardianship does not terminate the parents' rights or their obligation of child support
  • Either parent of the minor can end a guardianship at any time, for any reason
  • By accepting appointment as guardian, you agree to meet the responsibilities required by the Court
