What is Temporary Guardianship?
Temporary guardianship is a legal arrangement that allows someone other than the parents to take care of a child for a specific period of time. It is a way to provide stability and support for the child when the parents are unable to fulfill their parental responsibilities. This could be due to various reasons such as illness, incarceration, or other personal circumstances.
Temporary guardianship can be established through a legal process in Oklahoma. It involves filing a petition with the court and providing evidence of the reasons why temporary guardianship is necessary. The court will then review the petition and make a decision based on the best interests of the child.
