Court Appointed Guardian To Manage Your Affairs

Protecting Your Children

Next » « Previous


Many parents prepare a Will just to make sure their children are provided for if something happens to them. The person you designate to care for your children is called a Guardian.

A Guardian can also be appointed during your lifetime by going to court.

Find out just what a Guardian does and learn how to identify the right Guardian for your children. If you don't have someone right for the job, there are alternatives to consider such as foster care (even if only on a temporary basis), or adoption. 

Guardianship, foster care and adoption are described in the documents in "To Learn More."
