How to Write a Guardianship Paper

Establishing guardianship can be complicated. Guardianship papers are legal documents which are filed when, for any number of reasons, you want to take a child into your guardianship. The papers have to be filed at a local court, and a court investigator will be appointed to interview you and the child, and possibly the child's parents if they are available. Any attempt for guardianship of a child will require the written consent of the child's parents, and other close family members may contest your application, unless the court deems the guardianship in the child's best interests.

As the first step towards guardianship, you need to ensure that your guardianship papers are totally in order: error free and clear in meaning.

General Guardianship Paper Tips:

  1.  Plan your document. Make yourself a list of all points that need to be addressed.
  2.   Investigate all the court costs, and any special procedures that may apply in your state.
  3.   "Give notice" to the child's relatives. This can take time, so start as soon as possible.
  4.   Divide your document into sections, and the sections into smaller segments if necessary.
  5.   Don't use any slang, and omit needless words.
  6.   Use the active voice, avoid the passive voice.
  7.   Simplify wordy phrases.
  8.   Use numerals instead of written words for numbers.
  9.   Know where to go for reliable answers on correct grammar and spelling.
