Have tragic circumstances left a minor child in your life without parents, either because both parents are deceased or their parental rights been terminated? If so, the minor child needs a legal guardian appointed, so that someone is in place with legal authority to make medical, housing, schooling and other decisions for the child. There is a court process involved in getting appointed as guardian for a minor child. Most people find it helpful to have an attorney guide them through this process.
