It is also good to have somebody who takes care about you. Usually parents are those who look after a child, guide him and are responsible for him. Unfortunately children can loose their parents due to different circumstances. In these cases courts are empowered to appoint a guardian for the child or person that needs special protection.
Guardianship is a legal relationship where a guardian is a person who looks after:
- children whose parents can no longer take care of them
- persons over 18 years old who are mentally or physically incapacitated
