I am going to put your question on my "watch list" so you have an opportunity to give a little more information because there is little room to pose your question to the board. First off, unless she has parents or a guardian already, it doesn't make sense for you to be a guardian when she's your fiance. Get married! Please tell me what state you live in so I can tell you what the legal age is and I'll answer your question more thoroughly. Also, is there any family member that has a say in your fiance's wishes to get married? Thanks Marcy I am the 17 year old girl and we live in Wisconsin and I heard somewhere that minors' fiances can legally take guardianship, is that true for Wisconsin, if so then how can it happen?

i don't think it is legal but ask state to be sure. No, the situation given would not warrant the granting of guardianship and/or conservatorship. The best option is to wait until the minor female reaches the legal age of majority for the state which is eighteen (18).

Legal guardianship in some instances remains to be permanent but it can be reversed in some cases as a situation changes.

A stepparent is not considered a legal guardian. In some cases they should be and can be granted legal guardianship by the courts, but they are not automatically a legal anything. Legal guardianship is a separate issue. Stepparents are considered legal strangers to their stepchildren.

== Guardianship is a legal issue. Call or visit your local courthouse for information.

No. If the fiance is the natural father, then he does have rights to his son. Getting married doesn't give him legal rights to your child (assuming he is not the father). He must adopt in order to have legal rights.

You can get legal guardianship of an adult if he is mentally ill etc.

If a taxpayer wants to deduct the legal fees of guardianship, then part of these legal fees will need to have to do with the taxpayer trying to collect money for the guardianship. For example, if the guardian receives any child support or other unearned income from the guardianship, separate tax papers need to be filed.

A 19 year old does not need legal guardianship because they are no longer a minor. If the adult son or daughter has issues such as drug related problems; a debilitating disease or are a danger to themselves then it would be wise to seek legal advice where you could possibly obtain legal guardianship.

There is a process for a relative to be given legal guardianship. It starts with a formal qualification of being over the age of 21. Beyond that, the would be guardian merely has to file a form that states their intention of guardianship. It is then up to a judge to make that decision.

If the court approves the guardianship then the guardian will have the legal authority to make all decisions regarding the child. The parents will not have that authority.If the court approves the guardianship then the guardian will have the legal authority to make all decisions regarding the child.

A legal adult (21+ usually) can take Guardianship of you, but it needs to be bought up in front of a court for the exchange to be legalised.

Guardianship refers to the person or persons who are given the legal responsibility and authority to protect the rights and well-being of a person who is unable to protect him or herself. Legal guardians fall under the supervision of the court who granted such authority and may be required to appear periodically and report.

If you want legal guardianship for your brother you must petition a court to arrange it. It frequently helps to have a lawyer write the legal documents. Social workers can help guide you through the process. Contact them. They do such things quite often.

Yes, if the guardianship was established for the protection of a minor, then it will expire upon the minors attaining the age of legal adulthood.

There is no difference they are the same thing.

You can't obtain a legal guardianship for a child who does not reside in your jurisdiction. The court would not have any authority to grant a guardianship over a child who lives in another country.

In the US, no. Only a court can grant legal guardianship. If your child's father filed a petition to transfer legal guardianship to his parents you should be notified as the child's parent as long as your address is known to the father. You would have an opportunity to appear at the hearing and file an objection.In the US, no. Only a court can grant legal guardianship.

No, a fiance is not a next of kin. A fiance is merely a person who intends to become a next of kin. Until the marriage takes place, there is no legal relationship.
