Deciding whether or not to serve as guardian for another individual is a decision that requires much thoughtful consideration. While it can be a very rewarding and fulfilling role, it also carries significant time requirements and legal obligations. Failing to fulfill your duties as a guardian can land you in significant legal trouble. However, most Texas courts require all those appointed as guardians to go through a training course. This training course usually allows most qualified guardians to learn and understand the duties imposed on them and the obligations they are supposed to fulfill. Guardians who are devoted to the process and who understand the duties and obligations imposed on them, generally find serving a guardian to be a rewarding and fulfilling process.
