Helping Clients Seek Guardianship in Kansas & Missouri
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.
What Is Guardianship?
In Kansas and Missouri, guardianship is a legal process that grants someone the decision-making rights for a child or incapacitated person. Whether the child in question is being neglected, has been abandoned, or is suffering from physical abuse, you may need to petition the court for guardianship. Guardianship can also help adults or the elderly when they cannot make decisions for themselves regarding their finances, health care, or other personal decisions.
If you wish to become the guardian to an adult or a child in need, you should not hesitate to hire a Kansas City guardianship attorney to represent you. Seeking guardianship is the most effective way to ensure the child or children do not become wards of the state or remain in a dangerous situation.

- When your grandchild has been left with you and their parents are gone
