Managing Conservatorship

Managing Conservatorship is often referred to as a guardianship. A managing conservatorship does not terminate the rights of the child’s biological parents, but gives the legal authority to look after the well-being of the child to someone other than the child’s parent.

In a managing conservatorship, a judge appoints a person to be legally responsible for a child without adopting the child. The court can give managing conservatorship to a relative, a close family friend, or a foster parent.
