how do you say "legal guardian" in Spanish?
I need to know how to say "legal guardian" in Spanish. This is in regards to a child who no longer has a parent that is alive. Thanks!
I believe you could say "tutor legal", or "tutor"-
When I've attempted to translate it across literally I came up with "guarda legal", but I believe the first two possibilities are more likely to be correct. Hope this helps.
Legal guardian (n.) = Tutor legal
Ex: Thousands of children in California need legal guardians because their parents have died, abandoned them or are otherwise unable to care for them.
Cientos de niños en California necesitan tutores legales porque sus padres han muerto, los han abandonado o de alguna forma son incapaces de cuidarlos.
