  • Guardianship of a child whose parents are deceased or absent: In these cases, which can involve an estate that is left to a minor, a guardian can be appointed to look over both the child and the estate. The guardian is usually responsible for the upbringing of the child and for withdrawing regular payments from the estate for the care and upbringing of the child.
