Danvers Guardianship of Minors Attorney

Legal Counsel for Those Seeking Guardianships in North Shore Boston

When a parent becomes unable to provide stable care and support for a minor child, he or she may lose parental rights through actions taken by local governmental agencies. Such cases may come about through a parent's substance or alcohol abuse, in cases of domestic violence or child abuse, mental instability, or where other parental criminal activity has occurred. The children involved in such cases may be relegated to foster care or a temporary or permanent legal guardianship may be sought on their behalf by others.

If you are the noncustodial parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or other family member or friend of such a child, you can get knowledgeable legal advice about your alternatives and options from a Danvers guardianship of minors. Attorney Greenberg and our legal team can help you find the best solutions in cases where a parent has become incapable of taking proper responsibility for his or her child.

North Shore Boston Guardianship of Minors Lawyer

A guardianship of a minor gives the guardian the same legal rights and responsibilities as a parent regarding the child's support, care, education, health, and general welfare. The guardian will make daily decisions in this regard and must prove to the court that he or she is fit to take on this responsibility. Guardians are not required to be related to the child and do not become the child's legal parent. Birth parents may still be allowed to visit their child and the courts may return the child to the custody of a birth parent at any time when it is deemed appropriate. A guardianship will be terminated when the child reaches the age of 18, is adopted, returned to his or her birth parent, or when the court finds the guardianship is no longer necessary.
