Children need special protection. When a minor child has been named as the beneficiary of an estate or has received a settlement, a guardian of the estate will often be required to manage those assets until the child reaches the age of majority. At all times, the person applying to be a guardian must be represented by their own legal counsel.
The guardian has specific responsibilities which must be carried out with the interest of the child in mind at all times and the guardianship rules are stringent.
