Temporary Guardianship

Temporary guardianships petitions are processed in the Probate Court and are governed by O.C.G.A. §§29-2-5 through 29-2-8.

These petitions allow natural parents to place their minor children in the custody of third parties who then act as parents for a temporary period of time.  Because the establishment of a temporary guardianship over a minor child can adversely affect a natural guardian's parental rights, this Court recommends that both the Petitioner and the parents of the minor child seek legal counsel.

The “Temporary Guardianship Packet” may be found under “Forms and Documents.”

Please read the information contained in this packet thoroughly and complete all required forms before contacting this office for an appointment to file the Temporary Guardianship Petition.

Incomplete petitions will not be accepted for filing.
