Guardianship

Although there are several ways in Arizona in which to gain Custody over a child who is not your natural child, the main two options are “Guardianship” and “In Loco Parentis” (i.e., Non-Parent Custody). In order to find out which option is best for you, Contact us or call (602)254-8880 in order to set your free initial consultation with the Cantor Law Group today!

“Consensual Guardianship” in Arizona confers legal authority to a Non-Parent over a child through written contractual consent. A person who does have authority over the child (usually a birth parent) can immediately withdraw their consent and dissolve the Guardianship at any time. Because it is a “Consensual Guardianship”, the non-parent guardian is not allowed to officially Petition for a Guardianship if one of the parents has indicated they will be fighting that request. If the non-parent guardian wishes to challenge a parent’s withdrawal of the Consent Guardianship, then they must proceed through a “Non-Parent Custody Petition” (also known as In Loco Parentis). If either one of these two scenarios is a route you wish to pursue, Contact us or call (602)254-8880 to set your free initial consultation with the Cantor Law Group today!
