A Guardianship Agreement
You cannot apply to the Nova Scotia court for guardianship of the child himself (“the person of the child”). You can only ask the court for guardianship on a child`s property. In these cases, the parties should also consider entering into a guardianship agreement and, if they do, they must clearly state the ownership and/or assets for which the guardian is responsible. Temporary guardianship comes into effect on the date on which all parties must sign the document and automatically expires six months after that date if no date is specified. If guardianship is still required after six months, the parties may sign another temporary guardianship agreement or apply for permanent guardianship by the court. The guardianship of the child himself (“the person of the child”) is a private matter that can be annulled by the person who gave the guardianship. Custody is granted by a court order or written agreement between the parties and cannot be annulled as easily. For example, if you had a court order that talked about custody and you wanted to change that order, you would have to apply to the court for a new order. Guardianship agreements are considered very important documents for any type of guardianship agreement. The reason is that these agreements help determine how to continue the care of a child or adult who is unable to work; Both are vulnerable parties in the eyes of the law. Therefore, they need a loyal and trustworthy person to ensure their well-being.
A common example is when the current legal guardian has behaved offensively or violently towards the child or whether he or she has not taken care of the child. In such cases, the court may intervene to terminate the guardianship contract and appoint a new person as guardian for the child. Finally, a guardianship agreement can sometimes be a stand-alone document or written in the form of an affidavit. Guardianship agreements can also be established for adults who also require supervision due to intellectual disabilities or disability. In addition, guardianship agreements can be implemented through the conclusion of various legal documents. For example, a guardianship agreement may be included in a will document to potentially create a guardianship scheme for all surviving children if their parents have died. Another important concept to keep in mind in guardianships is that there is a kind of “guardian of the estate.” This type of guardianship occurs when a person becomes the custodian of another person`s property, personal property and other property (i.e. the estate). As a general rule, guardianship agreements are usually established by a child`s parents as a preventive measure in the event of a future event that leads them to stop caring for their child.
The document will determine who and how to transfer the child`s legal responsibility and supervision to another person.
