When Should I Seek Guardianship?
Posted February 04, 2019 11:37:22 The legal guardians of a person living in Wisconsin can make decisions about whether to adopt a child that are based on the person’s age.
For example, someone who is younger than 18 is entitled to adopt under Wisconsin law.
Guardianship can also be granted for the purpose of protecting the rights and property of the child.
A guardian ad litem (GAL) is a legal entity that is appointed to represent the child and who acts as the primary guardian of the children.
A person seeking guardianship under Wisconsin’s laws can have guardianship as a condition of the adoption or the guardianship of the minor child can be granted.
If you have questions about whether you need guardianship or if you have a question about the state’s laws, you can call a GAL at (608) 566-1233.

The Wisconsin Legislature passed the Wisconsin Guardianship Act in 1999.
The law requires that the state provide guardianship for the following: a person who is under 18 years old; a person at least 18 years of age if the child is less than six months old; and a person less than 21 years of Age if the minor is less then six months.
The statute also requires that a guardian be appointed to serve for life.
In addition, the state is required to provide for periodic hearings to determine the best way to provide guardians for a person under the age of 18.
The act also requires guardians to provide a list of all children living with them, and provides for the establishment of a state fund to provide those children with permanent and in-home placement services.
You can find the current information on the Wisconsin Government Code, including how guardianship is defined and granted in the Wisconsin statutes, at www.state.wi.us/legislation.
A Wisconsin statute defines the following terms in the state: age: An individual’s chronological age.
A child’s chronological date of birth.
A juvenile court hearing date.
Age may be the chronological date, a calendar year, a month or more.
A court hearing may be held by an adult, by an attorney for a juvenile or by a guardian ad litem.
A hearing is the proceeding in which a decision about whether or not to appoint a guardian is made.
A final decision is a decision by a judge that the child’s best interests are best served.
A minor child has the right to be protected from harm and to be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of the person or person’s actual age.
If a child is in foster care, a court hearing is a hearing in which the child can show that he or she is no longer in the care of the state.
If the child was adopted, a guardian may not have guardians appointed.
A guardianship hearing may also be held at a local or state courthouse if there are no other guardians appointed by the court.
In order for a guardian to be appointed, a judge must determine that the person is no more likely than not to harm the minor, and that the minor’s best interest is best served by the appointment.
If there is a court proceeding to appoint guardians, the guardian must show that the guardian has been selected by the person to act as the guardian and that there is no imminent risk of harm to the minor.
A parent or guardian may file a petition to appoint an adult guardian to act on behalf of the minors behalf.
In this type of proceeding, a parent or guardians is responsible for preparing the petition and for presenting the guardian’s petition to the court to be approved.
If no guardians are appointed, the minor may be transferred to a guardian’s home.
If in the next six months the court finds that a person is more likely to harm a minor child than a parent, the court will appoint a new guardian.
A new guardian may be appointed for a child who is no older than 18 years and a guardian who is less likely to be harmed by a child younger than 16.
For a person whose age is under 21 years, the adult guardian has the authority to make final decisions concerning guardianship.
The adult guardian must provide a copy of the court’s decision to the person who appointed the guardian, and must provide copies of the guardians’ petitions to the child for transfer to the guardian.
The child must be present at the hearing.
If at the time of the hearing, the person making the decision is the child, the guardians may be required to have a court-appointed guardian present at any other time.
If an adult is not present at a hearing, he or her guardian may also request that the hearing be postponed until a person appointed by a court becomes available.
The person who appoints the adult must provide the court with a list or description of all the children who reside in the household, including the names and ages of any children who live with
