safe and happyGuardianships can arise for the protection of the person and/or estate of a minor.

In cases where any minor is to receive a gift, inheritance, personal injury award, or other financial benefit, it may be necessary that his or her parents (or other responsible adult) be appointed by the court as guardian of the minor’s estate.  In addition, the court may appoint a guardian of the minor’s person in the event of the death or termination of parental rights, or incapacity or inability of a minor’s parents.

The Kiken Group, A Professional Corporation, can assist in the establishment of or disputes concerning the guardianship, its administration, accounting, distribution, and discharge of the guardian.
