If the child in question is not involved in a Family Court or Juvenile Court action the Probate Court can grant a Probate Guardianship. A Probate Guardianship is when the Court appoints an adult who is not the child’s parent to take care of the child or the child’s property.

The most common people to file for Guardianship of a child include a spouse, adult child, non-custody parent or grandparent, sibling, or public guardian.
