Denver Guardianship Attorney

Helping You Through the Guardianship Process in Colorado

Guardianships are tools to allow someone other than the biological parent to make legal decisions regarding children. Often times, this is a relative such as a grandparent or a close aunt/uncle. Guardianships may become necessary if a biological parent is unable to care for a child due to a multitude of reasons.

Some of these reasons include:

  • The biological parent/s have already passed
  • The biological parent/s are mentally incapacitated
  • The biological parent/s are in jail
  • The biological parent/s pose immediate danger to the child

No matter your reasons for seeking guardianship, it is imperative that you have an experienced legal counsel on your side. The process of guardianship can be overwhelming, and you should never attempt to go it alone.

Becoming a Legal Guardian

In Colorado, you don’t have to be related to the child to become his/her guardian. When the court determines your eligibility for guardianship, you and the child will be bounded by a legal relationship of guardian and ward. As a legal guardian, you have duties and responsibilities not just to the child, but also to the court.

These duties include but are not limited to:

  • Arrange for the ward’s care and protection
  • Decide on living arrangements
  • Arrange for the ward’s needs such as food, healthcare, education, recreation, welfare, etc.
  • Notify the court if you are planning to relocate or change address
  • Keep a record to track time spent with the ward as well as the record of the expenses incurred while taking care of the ward
  • Complete and file the court-mandated reports including the Annual Guardian’s Report
