Guardianship proceedings are instituted to obtain custody awards on behalf of non-parents for the benefit of minor children. Guardianship proceedings are handled by the Probate Department of the Superior Court. A guardianship is a court proceeding in which a guardian is appointed by the court to protect the person or estate of a minor child. Guardianship today is usually established by relatives or other caring adults to provide stability and care for minor children whose parents fail to provide these essentials to them. Petitions for guardianship of the person can be accompanied by a petition for temporary guardianship where there is an immediate need to protect the child from neglect or from suddenly being removed from someone with whom the child has been living with and with whom the child has emotionally bonded.
