Fort Worth Attorneys For Child Guardianships

In Texas, guardianship is divided into two classifications:

  • Guardianship of the person: The court appoints an individual to make personal decisions for the minor, such as housing, education and medical care.
  • Guardianship of the estate: The guardian’s responsibility can be more complex, here, as he or she must monitor the minor’s estate and file annual paperwork describing financial transactions.

While the court is mindful of the best interests of the child, the process of appointing a guardian can often feel painstakingly long and complex. In these situations, you need an experienced attorney who can guide you through the process and answer your questions from start to finish.
