Unless the Court specifies that a guardianship is temporary, the guardian appointed by the Court shall have custody and care of the child and/or management of the child’s property, depending on the type of guardianship, until the child reaches the age of eighteen (18), marries, is emancipated by the Court, or until the guardianship is modified or terminated by the Court. The Court may appoint a guardian for the child under such terms and conditions as the Court sets forth in the written order. There shall be a presumption of continued guardianship in order to provide stability for the child. [Res. 22-R-037, 2/24/2022; Res. 09-R-062 Title 1 § (20)(E), 4/30/2009. Formerly 10.10.520.]
