Guardianship

Guardianship

Guardianship is an essential part of family law, especially when it comes to the care and upbringing of children. At Gimbrere Legal, we are ready to support you with legal advice and assistance in this area. Our specialized attorneys have extensive experience in guardianship cases and will be happy to help you.

What is guardianship?

Guardianship means that an adult has legal responsibility for the care and upbringing of a minor child. This often occurs when the child’s parents are no longer able to care for them, such as due to death, illness or other circumstances. A guardianship lawyer can help you obtain guardianship and understand your rights and obligations.

The difference between parental authority and guardianship

Although parental authority and custody are often confused, they are different concepts. Parental authority is usually exercised by the parents, while guardianship can be assigned to someone other than the parents.

When is guardianship required?

Guardianship may be necessary in various situations, such as:

  • Death of both parents.
  • Inability of the parents to care for the child.
  • Situations where the judge decides that the child is better off with a guardian

In all of these cases, it is important to hire an experienced guardianship attorney who can guide you through the process.

How do you apply for guardianship?

Applying for guardianship is a legal process that must be done carefully. Our guardianship lawyers will help you every step of the way, from filing the petition to representing your interests in court. The process includes:

  1. Filing a petition with the court.
  2. Provide supporting documents and arguments.
  3. Attending court hearing.
  4. Obtain judgment.

Rights and duties of a guardian

As a guardian, you have several rights and duties similar to those of a parent. These include:

  • Care and education of the child.
  • Management of the child’s finances.
