When an adult is granted the rights of a legal guardian over a child or a minor, the responsibilities may be more comprehensive than the guardianship over an adult. A legal guardian of a child may have to assume the responsibilities of a parent including financial and emotional support. Despite the assumed parenting role, guardianship does not relinquish the rights of the birth parents. The child’s parents may also revoke your rights as legal guardian and resume parenting rights they if have proven their capacity to resume their roles as parents.
