The person charged with the responsibility to make decisions about a minor’s personal care or financial affairs until they come of age.

An adult who looks after a child but is not the child’s parent is referred to as a Guardian, and is appointed by a court to manage the child or the child’s property. Both the person’s and the estate’s guardianships can be granted in the event of a person’s incapacity.

In most cases, a court will appoint a guardian for a person to give the adult living with the child legal authority to make decisions on their behalf. The guardian is responsible for providing the child with food, clothes, shelter, education, and all of the child’s medical and dental needs. The guardian must also ensure the child’s safety, protection, and growth in both physical and emotional terms
