What is Boulder City Guardianship?
Guardianship is the process when a court orders a party who is not the child’s parent to have custody of the child and/or manage the child’s property. Typically, a Boulder City guardianship case is brought by the party who wants to obtain guardianship of the child or by a family member asking the court to designate a guardian.
Make sure not to confuse adoption and guardianship. In an adoption, parents’ rights are permanently ended and the adoptive parents are awarded the permanent rights of guardianship. Courts do not supervise adoptive families, which is common in a guardianship. Boulder City courts can also annul guardianship rights at any time, when and if the child’s parents are able to provide care. Courts often supervise guardianship relationships and throughout a guardianship, the child’s parents maintain the right to contact the child and make certain parental decisions.
