It is a settled law in Pakistan that the real father and mother are the natural guardians of the minor child. While appointing a guardian, the character, the capacity, and the fitness of the individual should be taken into consideration.
A guardian is responsible to ensure that the minor is supported, fed, dwelled, clothed, and educated in a manner suitable to his or her position in life and to the fortune which he or she is likely to enjoy upon attaining the age of majority.
The guardian appointed by the court is entitled to such allowance as the court thinks fit for the minor’s care and the effort that he or she goes through while undertaking the duties. Such an allowance could be paid out of the property of the child/ward.
A guardian appointed by the court cannot remove the ward from the limits of the court’s jurisdiction without written permission. The permission could be special or general and could be specified in the court order. Illegal removal of a ward from the court’s jurisdiction may constitute criminal prosecution.
