Becoming a Legal Guardian

A guardian has the legal responsibility of ensuring that his or her ward is cared for and looked after. The care provided is similar to adoption, but the legal rights of the parent and the relationship between the parent and child do not need to be terminated in order for guardianship to be approved.

A legal guardian is responsible for making decisions regarding the wards:

  • Shelter
  • Medical care
  • Education
  • Finances

A legal guardian may be appointed by the state, such as when a child is in foster care. In other situations, legal guardians may be related to the child, such as a grandparent, aunt, or uncle.
