What Is Guardianship?

There are two kinds of guardianship: estate guardianship and guardianship of the minor child's person. Estate guardianship deals with managing the minor child's finances and is generally established when a child has inherited extensive assets or property that require more than merely placing the money in an account, accessible when the child reaches the age of 18.

Guardianship of the minor child’s person is usually sought when the child’s parents are deceased, missing, or unable to care for their child.

A child’s parents may be unable to care for them for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Financial instability
  • Homelessness
  • Struggles with drug or alcohol addiction
  • Military deployment

When a guardianship is established, that guardian sees to the child’s needs, including their health, education, and general well-being.

Guardians are responsible for the total care of the child, including:

  • Clothing
  • Shelter
  • Protection
  • Education
  • Healthcare
  • Any other special needs the child may have

People who may seek guardianship of a minor child include grandparents, aunts, uncles, other close relatives, and close friends. In some cases, parents choose to establish guardianships for their children before problems arise, ensuring that if something unforeseen happens, their children’s future is secured.
