If a parent wants to end a guardianship, and take care for their child again, they can use a Petition to Discharge. The petition asks the court to end the guardianship of the other person. Then the parent can be the guardian of their child again.
Someone that isn't a parent can take over as guardian by filing a:
- Petition to Discharge
- Petition for Successor Guardianship
The Petition to Discharge ends the current guardianship. The Petition for Successor Guardianship asks the court to name a new guardian. This might happen if the current guardian dies or no longer wants to be the guardian.
