What is a Probate Guardianship?
Probate Guardianship is a legal process which someone other than a parent is granted custody of a child by the court of law.
Probate Guardianship can also be when a parent or other person is given authority over a child’s property.
However the child must be under the age of 18, also known as a minor for this to be legal.
Furthermore if there is an estate involved with the minor, a guardianship of the estate must be appointed by the court in a Probate Guardianship hearing.
In addition, the guardianship of the estate will be granted the power to make financial decisions for the minor.
Subsequently the parents or non-parents of the minor may be granted guardians of the minor and/or estate of the minor.
This can be completed in Probate Guardianship Court.
