There are many circumstances when one parent may not be a recognized guardian of their own children. Or when, a grandparent or other family member needs to be involved in the life of a child. We can meet with you, and discuss your particular circumstance and let you know what your best options are.
To be named a legal guardian can take on many different forms. You can share some or all or none of the decision-making. You can have access to medical and school records, and be able to give permission for medical procedures. You may or may not have the child living with you, it is not required that the child resides with you for you to have legal guardianship rights.
