Temporary Child Guardianships

In Oklahoma, almost all guardianships are temporary. When parents are unable to care for their children, a guardianship can transfer decision-making authority from the parents to another party for a period of time. Often grandparents, aunts, uncles, other relatives, or family friends step in to become guardians while parents improve their situations.

Some cases are amicable, with the parents willingly transferring their children’s care to a guardian, and other cases involve the parents disputing an attempted guardianship by a third party. In contested cases, the prospective guardian or guardians must establish that the parents are unfit. At Hensley and Associates, PLLC, we represent people seeking guardianships as well as parents seeking to defend their parenting rights. Whatever your interests in a guardianship case, we can help you.

Grandparents’ Rights

Grandparents are among the most common players in guardianships and custody disputes. When parents are unfit or when disputes arise between a divorcing spouse and the other spouse’s parents, it is important for everyone to understand their rights and options.

Grandparents have rights to maintain their relationships with their grandchildren. Our Tulsa grandparents’ rights attorneys help grandparents obtain visitation privileges with their grandchildren and guardianships when appropriate.

If you’d like to learn more about guardianships and grandparents’ rights, or if you would like to set up a consultation with our attorneys, you can call Hensley and Associates, PLLC at (918) 416-4832.
