Guardians of children who are in the custody of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services due to abuse and/ or neglect face many issues that normally are not addressed in the probate code or in probate court proceedings. Foster parents (prospective guardians) or guardians of former state wards should fully understand the permanency options of adoption and guardianship, including the rights, responsibilities, and commitments necessary for each.

If you have more questions about guardianship please contact a Resource Family Consultant or the office at 1-877-257-0176.
