Becoming a Parent

Tutorship to a Minor

As parents, you are your minor child’s legal tutors. You must represent the child in exercising his or her civil rights and administer the child’s patrimony. If one of you dies or becomes incapacitated, the other parent shall become the child’s sole legal tutor. If both of you should die or become incapacitated, a dative tutor will be appointed to act as the child’s representative.

If you cannot fully exercise your duties of tutorship toward your minor child, you may have recourse to suppletive tutorship.
