Short Description

A Guardianship-type is a class of guardianship arrangements within the jurisdiction that governs and manages them. It comprises duty and right types that can be used as a template for instantiating duties and rights of guardianship arrangements that instantiate the guardianship-type.

A good way to think abouat a guardianship-type is to see it as a template from which instances - i.e. actual guardianship arrangements can be derived.

The Guardianship pattern provides an overview of how this concept fits in with related concepts. The Jurisdiction pattern provides backgrounds on jurisdictions and how they function.

Purpose

A Guardianship-type serves as a template from which instances - i.e. actual guardianship arrangements can be instantiated. It allows the jurisdiction within which it is defined to specify generic duties and rights, both for guardians and dependents. When the need arises for a guardianship arrangement of that type, this set of roles, duties and rights can conveniently be used as a starting point.
