Guardianship is typically sought by relatives other than the parents or friends who feel it is necessary to have custody over a child or an incapacitated adult due to the inability or unavailability of both parents. Many of the emotional issues are the same issues you have dealing with regular divorce or paternity actions. However, there are different legal standards and ramifications that should be considered when obtaining a guardianship or defending against one. In many cases, a guardianship can be preferred over the involvement of child welfare services.
