A minor or an incapacitated adult with special needs cannot make any decisions for themselves. That is why the need for a legal guardian (appointed by the court or a dependent’s will) is necessary, especially if their biological parents are no longer around to take care of them.
Under the Oklahoma Guardianship and Conservative Act, guardianships can be granted for minors in Oklahoma, partially and fully incapacitated persons, property in Newcastle belonging to a minor or an incapacitated person outside Newcastle, and property coming into the control of a guardian who is under Oklahoma laws.
The parents of an individual are considered as his natural guardians, that’s why any other person has no right or power to be a guardian unless otherwise appointed by any Oklahoma court. Guardianship involves the responsibility for a child’s (or incapacitated person’s) personal, financial, medical, emotional concerns, and his overall well-being.
If you find yourself concerned about a child or another person and you want to be his guardian, a guardianship lawyer from the Law Office of Lisé L. Edwards can help.
