What Does Guardianship Mean?
Are you wondering what guardianship entails? Let us explain. A guardian is a person other than the child’s biological father or mother, who is legally responsible for a child. Usually, Guardianship means that the guardian has legal custody and responsibility for the child, and has the right to make all decisions concerning him/her. Guardianship is regulated by state laws and is a legal matter that we can help you navigate.
At Sturdivant & Associates, LLLC, our Honolulu lawyer is dedicated to helping families understand that a legal guardian is responsible for providing the following for the child:
- Medical expenses
- Educational expenses
- Handling the child’s finances
If you are certain that you can take on the responsibilities above, our family law firm can help guide you through the necessary proceedings, starting with filing for the petition, and representing you in court.
