Guardianship can refer to the legal custody of a non-biological child, disabled adult child, or an incapacitated adult. This generally becomes a litigious matter when a parent (or current caretaker) passes away or fails to meet the legal standards for guardianship. Common forms of establishing guardianship include adoption, foster care, and guardian ad litem (GAL), which is a court-appointed volunteer who represents the interests of a child. In other circumstances, individuals are looking to relinquish guardianship, emancipate themselves from guardianship, or protect themselves in cases of surrogacy and child reproductive rights.
Regardless of whatever guardianship matters come your way in life, it is wise to retain legal counsel from a seasoned Orlando family lawyer you can trust for intelligent and practical solutions that work for you.
