New Orleans and Jefferson Parish Guardianship Lawyers
Tutorship is the term used in Louisiana to describe what is known in other states as guardianship or conservatorship. A minor, by law, does not have the legal authority to manage his or her financial affairs. For example, a minor may be the recipient of a personal injury settlement or may inherit property in a will. Both of these actions may require that an adult be appointed to receive and manage money or property on behalf of the minor.

Tutorships may be necessary when biological parents pass away or divorce. The child’s personal and financial needs must be met by a court appointed adult, called a tutor. Tutorship may also be needed in order to bring a lawsuit on behalf of a child or settle an existing lawsuit.
A tutorship may also be appropriate in cases where a developmentally disabled person will soon become a legal adult. This is called a continuing tutorship, which is faster and more desirable than an interdiction. Contact our attorneys today to discuss how a continuing tutorship may be appropriate for your developmentally disabled child.
