Although it can be extremely stressful, there are some circumstances where a child must be removed from their parent's home. If the health and safety of the child depends on it, you may need to take action to take over guardianship. Whether the child in question is being neglected, has been abandoned completely, or has been suffering from physical abuse, you may need to petition the court for guardianship. This is the most effective way to ensure that the child or children do not become wards of the state or remain in a dangerous situation.
Guardianships can also help adults or the elderly when they cannot make decisions for themselves regarding their finances, health care, or other personal decisions.
