Every parent with an individual (child/young adult) who is differently-abled is frought with concern about the individual’s care in the forseeable future. It is good planning to ensure the child/young adult’s future is in safe hands, in the event that the primary caregiver is incapable or absent to care for the child/young adult. The National Trust of India has a provision to apply for and procure a Legal Guardianship Certificate. A Legal Guardianship is the legal process of appointing a Legal Guardian for your child/young adult, who has the authority to make decisions on all personal matters (in some cases financial too) on behalf of the child/young adult, to suit his/her best interests.
Please refer to the presentation above to understand the key steps and preparations required to procure this certificate.
