Atlanta Attorney For Guardianship Of Minors

When parents are temporarily unable to care for their children — due to an extended vacation, work or school responsibilities, or personal reasons — a temporary guardianship may be established to grant a competent adult the power to make legal decisions for the child in his or her care. At the Atlanta law office of attorney Jody A. Miller, we help parents throughout north Georgia establish temporary guardianships so the children they love are cared for.

North Georgia Minor Guardianship Lawyer

Parents may want other adults to have temporary guardianship over their children for many reasons. If travel, business, educational commitments, or other personal matters are interfering with your ability to care for your children, appointing a temporary guardian will help ensure that they are properly cared for in your absence.

At the law office of Jody A. Miller, we help clients name responsible and caring adults as temporary guardians of their minor children.

Establishing Temporary Guardianship Over Minor Children

In Georgia, the probate court may establish a temporary guardianship when parents agree to appoint a third party to take temporary care of their child. Parents may terminate a temporary guardianship at any time. If the appointed guardian agrees with the parents' decision to terminate the guardianship and resume caring for their child, the guardianship will automatically terminate without a court hearing.

However, in the event that the temporary guardian does not believe that dissolution of the guardianship is in the child's best interests, a hearing will be held to determine whether the guardianship should continue.

Attorney Jody Miller represents both parents and guardians during temporary guardianship disputes. Drawing upon her extensive experience and legal knowledge, Ms. Miller helps adults obtain solutions that are right for their children and their family.

If you are a parent wishing to establish a temporary legal guardian for your child or a guardian who does not believe it is in the child's best interests to return to his or her parent, contact Atlanta lawyer Jody Miller today at 678-905-7562 or 866-319-0924.
