If the parents of children are unable to care for them, whether due to the parent’s untimely death, disability or unfitness, another person can be appointed to care for the children until they reach adulthood.

A guardian needs to complete a full background check and the guardian’s home must be approved as appropriate for the children. Even after the guardianship is approved, reports on the children must be submitted to the Court annually.

There are complex procedures that must be completed before a permanent guardianship can be approved. Our firm can help you complete these procedures and minimize or eliminate many court appearances, making the procedure less arduous for the guardian. Contact Julie Clark, Attorney at Law today.
