Children: A Guardian For Your Children

How Long Does A Guardianship Last?

Next » « Previous


A guardianship will ordinarily last until:

  • A child reaches legal age as defined by the state in which you reside,
  • A child dies, or
  • A judge determines that guardianship is no longer necessary.
  • The child's assets are used up if the guardian controls only your child's finances.
  • A guardian steps down from his or her role. Usually this step requires permission from the court. In this case, a judge will appoint a replacement guardian.
