Establishing guardianship over a minor child gives many benefits and responsibilities for the adult guardian. For example, they are authorized to:
- Make important decisions related to the child’s health care and medical treatment
- Manage state benefits to which the child is entitled
- Enroll the child in school
There is a formal application process to obtain guardianship of a child, and applicants must appear before a judge to explain why they want to become the child’s guardian. Oklahoma City guardianship attorney Phillip P. Owens II assists our clients during the entire process, preparing them to speak to the judge and make their case.
