Service Description

Have you applied for guardianship for your child and no longer need it? Then you can terminate the guardianship at the local youth welfare office.

A guardianship is a special form of legal representation for children and young people. If you want to establish paternity or claim maintenance, the youth welfare office can legally represent the child in the relevant proceedings and thus relieve you. If you no longer need the guardianship, you can terminate it in whole or in part at the local youth welfare office.

The guardianship ends automatically if the legal requirements are no longer met. This is the case, for example, if

  • both parents have assumed joint custody and the child lives in the same household,
  • the child is of legal age,
  • you move abroad with the child or
  • the guardianship has fulfilled its purpose, for example if paternity has been established.
