Making a Temporary Guardianship Agreement
A Temporary Guardianship Agreement is used to grant or allow another person or institution temporary authority to care for or make certain decisions on behalf of your minor child(ren) in your absence. This document should only be used if you are providing basic authorization in regard to who has the authority to make decisions for your child(ren) in your absence. An informal agreement may not need court approval, however, to be considered a temporary guardianship under the law, some specific court forms may also be required to confer rights. Please talk to a lawyer to determine if any other forms are necessary in your state and/or situation.
Use the Temporary Guardianship Agreement document if:
You would like to give temporary authorization for another individual to make decisions regarding your child
The circumstances making guardianship necessary might change in a short period of time
You are experiencing financial difficulties or physical or mental ailments preventing you from caring for the child(ren)
Typically a Temporary Guardianship Agreement is for circumstances in which the grant of custody over a child or children will last no more than 6 months. If your circumstances may require a guardianship agreement that will last more than 6 months, you may either renew the Temporary Guardianship Agreement or consider making a Child Care Authorization form or Power of Attorney for Child. If you have any questions as to whether a Temporary Guardianship Agreement is the best fit for your circumstances and needs, an On Call lawyer can assist you.
