Guardianship Of Minors In West Palm Beach

A guardianship is a legal proceeding in which the court appoints an agent (the guardian) and gives that person authority to make decisions on behalf of another person (the ward). Minor guardianships are generally established to provide care for minor children in the event that the parents are no longer able to provide this care themselves. Guardianships can be complex. It is important to obtain counsel from an experienced guardianship lawyer to help you through the process.
