What is Henderson Guardianship?

Guardianship is the legal process when a court orders an individual who is not the child’s parent to care for the child and/or supervise the child’s property. Normally, a Henderson guardianship case is brought by the party who wishes to receive guardianship of the child or by a family member asking the court to designate a guardian.

Don’t confuse adoption and guardianship. In an adoption, parents’ rights are totally ended and the adoptive parents are given the permanent privileges of guardianship. Courts do not supervise adoptive families, which is normal in a guardianship. Henderson courts can also cancel guardianship rights at any time, when and if the child’s parents are able to give care. Courts often supervise guardianship relationships and throughout a guardianship, the child’s parents maintain the right to get in touch with the child and make certain parental choices.

Guardians are answerable for taking care of a child’s basic necessities, such as:
