Skilled & Caring Jackson, MS Family Lawyers

Are you a close relative, grandparent, or personal friend of a family whose child needs a guardian? Regardless of the exact circumstances which have led to the parents being unable to care for the child, stepping in is a very caring thing to do. However, as generous and sincere as your intentions may be, there are many legal matters which must be attended to in order to establish a legal guardianship.

At Shows Law Firm PLLC, we have more than 70 years of experience handling family law matters, including guardianships.

Understanding the Responsibilities of Guardianship

Our legal team is committed to providing you with exceptional representation and guidance throughout the steps of obtaining guardianship. We are known for our legal skill, knowledge, and competence in all types of guardianship cases. We want to ensure that you understand both your rights and responsibilities, should you decide to move forward.

Appointing a legal guardian typically occurs when a parent can no longer provide shelter or support for their child. Once the guardian has been approved by the court, the custody, supervision, and rights to care are given to the guardian.

A few of the important responsibilities of a guardian of a child include:

  • Providing proper medical care
  • Ensuring the child is in school
  • Providing supervision and care
  • Ensuring the child has a safe place to live
  • Ensuring that the child has clothing and food
