I Want to be a Guardian. What do I do now?
Being a guardian to a child in need is one of the most fulfilling experiences someone can have. But becoming one isn't as easy as signing a piece of paper. To be a guardian a court must appoint you as a guardian. Which means filing paperwork with the court, requesting and attending a hearing, and presenting sufficient evidence to the court as to why you should be appointed. This, on top of caring for another's child, usually that of a loved one or child, can be overwhelming. It's important to have knowledgeable legal council help you.
