Guardianship

Keywords: guardianship

There are times when someone other than a child’s mother or father must step in to care for him or her. This is called guardianship or sometimes custodianship. It may even be termed in loco parentis, which is Latin for standing in place of the parents. These concepts have different meanings under Arizona family law, and it is important to understand the distinctions. Regardless, such proceedings can be complex. That’s why it is important have a Chandler guardianship lawyer on your side every step of the way, no matter whether you are a parent facing this situation or a non-parent wanting to gain custody of one of more children.
