3B:12-68. Findings, declarations
2. The Legislature finds and declares that there is an imperative need to create an expeditious manner of establishing a guardianship known as a standby guardianship, in order to enable a custodial parent or legal custodian suffering from a progressive chronic condition or a fatal illness to make plans for the permanent future care or the interim care of a child without terminating parental or legal rights. The Legislature further finds that current law does not adequately address the needs of custodial parents or legal custodians who are suffering from a progressive chronic condition or a fatal illness and who desire to make plans for the future care of their children without terminating parental or legal rights.
