Guardianship Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

For an underage child, a guardian is appointed by the court, if both parents cannot or do not want to take sufficient care of their child's affairs. In this case, parents are often deprived of parental custody. if both parents with custody die or, if only one parent is entitled to care, if the parent dies. if it is not possible to determine who the parents of a child are. A specific person, an association or the local youth office can be appointed as guardian. The Youth Office automatically becomes guardian when a minor unmarried mother has a child. This shall not apply if the father of the child is of legal age, paternity has been established before birth and the parents have made a statement of joint parental custody. This guardianship ends as soon as the mother comes of age. In addition to this guardianship "by law", there are additional provisions on when guardianship does not occur or in which cases it also occurs. Information on this can be obtained from the Youth Office. Instead of guardianship, a caretaker is also possible. A nursing home covers only a few areas of guardianship, such as the right of residence and health care. Tasks of the guardian: The guardian represents the child in all legal matters. For example, he submits applications to authorities, takes legal action, gives operational consents and manages his assets. The guardian also decides where the child lives and which school he attends.
