Factors that can weigh heavily on a child's best interests

The well-being of children is often at the mercy of the choices made by adults. Because of this, the family law courts ensure that a child's best interests are top priority when constructing a child custody arrangement. Which factors can be considered during the child custody process when determining what is in a child's best interest?

What are the responsibilities for a guardian of a minor?

Taking care of each other is one of our most basic human principles. So when a family member or friend is unable to care for their child, whether permanently or temporarily, a guardian is a person who could step in and care for the minor until they reach the age of adulthood. The decision to become someone's guardian shouldn't be made lightly, though. Instead, interested individuals need to have a solid understanding of duties and responsibilities of a guardian before taking legal action to create that relationship.
