What is Tutorship in Louisiana?
In the state of Louisiana, tutorship is the legal equivalent of what other states commonly refer to as guardianship. This legal relationship designates an individual as the caretaker and decision-maker for a minor child. Typically, tutors are appointed in situations such as divorce or the unfortunate event of a parent’s death.
