Guardianship

Supporting Every Child’s Right to a Loving Home

When parents aren’t able to take care of their child for a variety of reasons, a third party can sometimes step in and request custody of the child. This is called guardianship, and it may be granted to a grandparent, uncle, aunt, or even someone outside of the family. Whether you’re a parent whose circumstances have left you unable to care for your child, or you’re a relative who wants to take responsibility for a child’s care, the guardianship process is one of the most important ones we cover. It means stepping up to help protect a child.

A guardian’s responsibilities can include:

  • Deciding where the child will live
  • Enrolling the child in school or childcare
  • Ensuring the child has medical care
  • Providing shelter and food for the child
  • Taking proper care of the children
