If one parent dies, the other is granted custody of the children. You and the other parent may want to say it in your will or separation agreement if you have one to be clear about what your wishes are. The person who signs the guardianship of a child must generally swear or confirm this agreement before a lawyer or an Eid commissioner. We recommend that you certify the notarized document (with a lawyer who is a “notary”) if the agreement is used outside Nova Scotia. Tribunal officers cannot swear or confirm these agreements because they are not court documents. If you wish to obtain guardianship on a child`s property, you must file a legal petition. This would generally be done under the Guardianship Act of Nova Scotia. You can apply if a child under the age of 19 receives property or money, z.B if the child inherits money from a deceased parent or receives a right to insurance (as if he or she was injured in an accident). You should talk to a lawyer to see how and where to do it. A person who has custody or custody of a child may give a designated person guardianship of the child through a document called a guardianship agreement or by a will in which they designate the other person as legal guardian, guardianship of the child. Temporary guardianship comes into effect on the date on which all parties must sign the document and automatically expires six months after that date if no date is specified.

If guardianship is still required after six months, the parties may sign another temporary guardianship agreement or apply for permanent guardianship by the court. The person with the right of guardianship must be an adult. In Nova Scotia, that means someone 19 years of age or older. In these cases, the appointment of a guardian is a private matter between the parties. These appointments may be challenged by anyone who may have the right to care for the child. “Guardianship” generally refers to a person`s right to care for another person or to take care of his property and affairs. There are essentially two types of guardianship that relate to children: the guardianship of a child himself (“the person of the child”) or the property of a child. A person who has custody or custody of a child may give a designated person guardianship of the child through a document called a guardianship agreement or by a will in which they designate the other person as legal guardian, guardianship of the child. The person with the right of guardianship must be an adult.

In Nova Scotia, that means someone 19 years of age or older. In these cases, the appointment of a guardian is a private matter between the parties. These appointments may be challenged by anyone who may have the right to care for the child. If you have a guardianship contract, you can terminate it at any time. This is usually done through a separate document. The caregiver must receive a copy.
