Adoptions And Guardianships: An Overview
A legal guardian has a lot of responsibilities. It is their job to make decisions on behalf of an individual who cannot make decisions on his or her own. They are typically appointed to help minor children; however, they can also work with an adult who has special needs. A guardian can be chosen either by the court or by a parent. The obvious benefit of naming a specific guardian should you pass away is that you can pick someone you trust, as opposed to a judge who isn’t as familiar with your situation.
When expanding your family, adoption can ensure the child is legally considered yours. Since every situation is different, there are different hurdles you must tackle in the process. Regardless, there are certain processes you must go through. This includes going through an interview as well as agreeing to a home visit. The process can be lengthy, but it is definitely worth it. We are here to help make it move along as quickly as possible.
