Guardianship is a legal relationship established when a person or institution named in a will or appointed by the court is tasked to take care of minor children or incompetent adults, which is also sometimes referred to as conservatorship. To become a guardian, someone appeals to the court to appoint them as the guardian, and this could be a family member, close friend, or a local official responsible for the welfare of a minor. Guardianship of minors remains under court supervision until the child reaches 18 years of age.
