FAQ - Guardianship

What is a minor guardianship?

Minor guardianship is a Court process that approves a person to act in place of a parent and take responsibility for a minor.  A guardianship can be established for a short time (such as while a legal parent is working out of town or during deployment) or can continue until the minor turns 18.

If the Court appoints you as a guardian for a minor, you will become responsible to the Court.  It is important that you clearly understand your responsibilities prior to accepting guardianship of a minor.
