Guardian Declaration

A Guardian Declaration will allow parents to designate a person to exercise parental authority and financial authority on their behalf while their children are minors.

Minor Defined

A minor is a person under 18 years of age and who has never been married and who has not had the disabilities of minority removed.

Guardians Appointment


Under Texas law, a court may appoint a guardian of the minor’s person or of a minor’s estate. A guardian of the person exercises parental responsibilities while a guardian of the estate handles the minor's assets. You may elect the same person to be guardian of the person and of the estate.

Parents are Natural Guardians


Under Texas Law, both parents are the natural guardians of their children while alive. If one parent is alive, the surviving parent is the guardian of the minor.
