Question: I am the legal Guardian of my 15 y/o neice who is currently pregnant. Do I need to establish guardianship of the baby?
Answer: Currently, the Arizona statutes concerning guardianship do not provide for guardianships of unborn children. Because of this, guardianship can only be established once a child is born. It is generally not necessary to establish guardianship of a child whose parent is under guardianship; however, it is possible to do so. For information on how to establish guardianship of a minor, please refer to question 529.
