Approaching Guardianship in Las Vegas
Guardianship is a legal process wherein a party, other than the parent of a child, seeks custody and control of a minor child. Although the guardian will have legal and physical custody of a child, this does not necessarily terminate a parent's obligation to pay child support to help with the child's care.
Our law firm represents family members and others in issues related to guardianship. You may be seeking guardianship of your grandchild, niece, nephew or even a minor sibling if you are over the age of 18. You may be close to the child, although not related by blood, and may wish to seek guardianship to care for a child when the parents cannot. Regardless of the circumstances regarding your guardianship case, an attorney at our offices can help. We represent those seeking guardianship and can also assist custodial parents in challenging frivolous or unjustified guardianship cases.
