There are many reasons to seek guardianship or child custody orders. In some cases, clients find themselves suddenly responsible for the care of a child due to unforeseen circumstances. A court order provides caregivers with the authority to enroll the child in school, obtain medical care and treatment, obtain health insurance coverage, and generally take all steps to see to the child’s well-being. A guardianship or custody order may be temporary or permanent, and may sometimes lead to an adoption plan in the future.
In other cases, disabled or mentally ill children reach adulthood, and their loved ones require a court order to continue to make sound decisions for their welfare.
A parent, spouse, or loved one may suffer from debilitating illness, mental impairment, or traumatic injury, and it often becomes necessary for a responsible adult to seek a court order granting the authority to make decisions on that person’s behalf.
