Skilled Legal Counsel In Matters Of Guardianship And Adoption
Ensuring that children have someone to care for them is one of the court’s greatest concerns. When a parent is unable to assume that role, the court can appoint a guardian who will assume the responsibilities of providing for the child and making decisions that affect the child’s well-being.
