  • Guardians of the Person

  • Guardians of the Estate


Minors are not allowed to inherit property in their own name in Tennessee, therefore a guardian of the estate is appointed by the Court to manage the assets of the Minor until the Minor reaches adulthood. Guardians may also be appointed if a Minor receives funds due to a settlement or lawsuit.  Guardian of the Person may be necessary if neither of the Minor's parents are still living.
