Permanent Guardianships

Permanent Guardianships of minor children are not authorized unless both parents are deceased or the parental rights of any living parent have been terminated by a court.

Termination of Parental Rights
Termination of parental rights is not the same thing as a loss of custody. Termination is permanent.

Custody Orders
A custody order may be modified at a later date.
