There are situations when a parent can’t care for a child and the state must intervene. If that child is over 14, he or she has a say in his or her fate. When it comes to guardianship and conservatorship, minor children can express who they wish to be appointed. Minor children can also legally express their preferences and wishes related to visitation and custody issues, whether those issues involved parents or grandparents. Minor children also have the right to express opinions about medical care thanks to the mature minor rule.
Minor rights can be a difficult pursuit for families and the court system as minor children are not typically seen as responsible or mature enough to direct or influence serious matters related to their care and well-being. However, Massachusetts recognizes the importance of a minor child being fully aware of his or her rights.
