While minors are generally protected and cared for by their parents, there are times when a child may need a separate individual to attend to their legal rights. Perhaps the minor has inherited assets or no longer has a parent qualified to make legal decisions on his or her behalf. In these cases, a guardian may be appointed to take care of the child or the child’s assets. A guardianship does not sever the legal relationship that exists between a child and his or her biological parents. Family law issues, especially those that deal with minors, can be both legally complicated and emotionally taxing.
