What is Summerlin Guardianship?

Guardianship is the legal process when a court orders a family who is not the child’s parent to care for the child and/or manage the child’s property. Usually, a Summerlin 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 totally terminated and the adoptive parents are awarded the permanent privileges of guardianship. Courts do not oversee adoptive families, which is common in a guardianship. Summerlin courts can also withdraw guardianship rights whenever they see fit, when and if the child’s parents are able to give care. Courts often look after guardianship relationships and throughout a guardianship, the child’s parents preserve the authority to get in touch with the child and make limited parental choices.

Summerlin Guardianship Responsibilities

Guardians are answerable for handling a child’s essential necessities, such as:

  • Providing food, clothing and shelter
  • Providing a safe and nurturing environment
  • Overseeing physical and emotional growth
  • Providing medical care
  • Providing basic educational opportunities

I couldn’t say enough about Dawn and her partner Michelle Hauser. They both played a huge roll in me adopting my two Grandchildren. They knew the in’s and out’s of the law and put the other attorney at a lose for words. I highly recommend them to anyone fighting to adopt a child or children. They both know the law inside and out and you will be proud knowing they are fighting for you.
