Sometimes a Guardianship is the Best Solution
Guardianship is a legal solution that helps many families address questions involving children with absent or incompetent parents as well as incapacity of adults who need legal protection. A child may need a legal guardian when parents have died, are in prison, are incapacitated by drug addiction or other debilitating conditions or are overseas in the military.
Contact a child custody attorney at the law offices of Anderson & Associates, P.C., in Chicago, Schaumburg or Wheaton, Illinois, for guardianship needs in Cook County, DuPage County or in other nearby counties.
When Other Family Members Take on Parental Roles or Care for Elderly, Disabled
An aunt, uncle, grandparent or other relative may seek to be named legal guardian of a child whose parents are unavailable or unable to fulfill usual parental roles. Or a family member or non-family member may be appointed legal guardian of an elderly, developmentally disabled or incapacitated adult.
A legal guardian has the right to make decisions that parents normally make for their children: where they will live, where they will go to school (if children), what medical care they will receive and much more.
