My daughter is 18, almost 19. My question is can I give up guardianship to my parents who live in Illinois. We are hoping she will get in-state tuition there. Also we are looking at her losing our tricare health benefits soon. She has type one diabetes. Our income is too much to qualify her for medicaid but if she is claimed by my family and they have guardianship will she be eligible for benefits while living with them. She wants to go to college but because of health issues will take longer than the traditional student and she will be without coverage. Also, would we be left with any rights?
It is possible to give someone a power of attorney that grants temporary guardianship of a minor. However, under Illinois law, a person becomes an adult at the age of 18. In order to create a guardianship for an adult, there is a court process of appointment, which requires finding that the adult lacks capacity to manage themself or his/her affairs.
