Kinship Navigator - Tutorship in Louisiana

Tutorship is when a person is legally responsible for caring for a minor child and has been appointed by a court to be the child's tutor. Guardianship is the term used in every other state for tutorship. You will even see it in many Louisiana laws. However, in Louisiana, someone can only officially be named a guardian in a Child in Need of Care Proceeding (See CINC/ Guardianship Fact Sheet).
