Children under the age of 14, left without parental care and incapacitated citizens cannot independently exercise their property rights and fulfill their duties. These functions are performed by the guardianship and guardianship authorities. In addition, any person who becomes aware of a person in need of guardianship must, without fail, inform the guardianship and guardianship authorities about it.

Step 1

If the guardianship authorities received information that minor children were left without parents for any reason, they immediately conduct an examination and confirmation of the fact. Then they provide temporary placement of these persons until the issue of the appointment of a guardian or guardian is resolved.

Step 2

Guardianship should be established at the place of residence of a person in need of guardianship or guardianship, or at the place of residence of the guardian. Adoption of a child for the purpose of maintenance and education is possible if the child has not reached the age of 14. In this case, guardianship is established. If the child is already 14 years old, but not 18, then guardianship is established. To establish custody of a child, you must first of all contact the guardianship authorities.

Step 3

The guardian has all the rights and responsibilities in relation to the child. The state pays monthly funds for child support in the amount established in the region of residence. In addition, the guardianship authorities control the conditions for the upbringing, maintenance and education of the child. Establishment of guardianship does not require a court decision; a decision of local self-government bodies is sufficient. Guardians are not subject to strict housing and income requirements.

Step 4

The decision to establish guardianship must be made within one month from the moment the guardianship authorities became aware of the need to establish guardianship. When appointing a guardian, consideration shall be given to the possibilities of fulfilling guardian duties and the relationship between the guardian and his ward. A guardian is appointed mainly by a person close to the ward, or a representative of a public organization. If the ward does not agree with the decision of the board of trustees for any reason, the decision is canceled.

Step 5

It is possible to appoint a guardian even if the child is being brought up in a specialized children's institution. A guardian cannot be a person who has not reached the age of 18, or who has been declared incapacitated or deprived of parental rights.
