When a child is in need of care and support, guardianship can be an option to consider. Legal guardianship is a court order that gives someone who is not the child’s parent the legal authority to care for the child. The legal guardian has the same rights and responsibilities as a parent, including making decisions about the child’s education, medical care, and daily life.
At the Law Office of Chow & Losinski, our experienced attorneys can assist you in understanding the legal guardianship process and provide guidance in pursuing guardianship. Our team can help you navigate the complex legal system and ensure that the child’s best interests are prioritized throughout the process.
Some of the situations that may warrant legal guardianship include a parent’s death or incapacity, a parent’s inability to care for the child due to substance abuse, or a parent’s incarceration. Legal guardianship can provide stability and a sense of security for the child in these challenging situations.
