A temporary Title 14 guardianship allows for an appropriate adult to be appointed as a guardian for a child. The appointed guardian will then be responsible for the child’s mental, physical, emotional, and educational needs. Often, a Title 14 guardianship is appropriate when a caregiver needs the ability to enroll a child in school or obtain medical care and health insurance for a child. These guardianships are revocable and usually require both parents’ consents.
Title 14 guardianships have strict requirements when it comes to the documents and information that must be filed with the Clerk of the Court to obtain a Hearing. The Juvenile Court will then conduct a hearing in order to find the guardian appointment is in the child’s best interests pursuant to A.R.S. § 14-5206,
