Guardianship is a process by which the court designates a person to act instead of the parent when the parent is unable to fill that role for whatever reason. In my practice, it is generally a temporary guardianship, until the parent can fulfill the parental duties once again. When a permanent arrangement is desired by the parties, or when it is a better solution to the problem being encountered, adoption is often the best choice. In either case, I have experience in both areas, and can assist you in deciding which option is the better avenue for you and your family. Just get in touch for a consultation. Initial consultations by phone or email are always free and of course, confidential.
