Becoming a guardian

A guardian is assigned to a child whose parent(s) does (do) not protect the child’s legal rights and interests. Guardianship is established by the city district government of the child’s place of residence based on the population register. The city district government identifies a suitable person as a guardian and obtains their consent to become a guardian. When establishing the guardianship, the city district government seeks and takes into account the opinions of the child and other related parties.

If an interested person has submitted an application to the court to become a guardian to a child, the city district government collects and submits the information necessary for establishing the guardianship by order of the court and provides it to the court upon request.
