Title 29, Chapter 4, Section 2 (29-4-2)

(a) Unless otherwise provided in this Code section, if both parents are alive, either parent is the natural guardian of a minor child. If a parent is dead or if the parents are legally separated or divorced, the parent having custody of the child is the natural guardian.

(b) The natural guardian may not demand or receive the property of the child until such natural guardian becomes the legally qualified guardian of the property of such child by the judge of the probate court; provided, however, that, where the value of the property of the child is $5,000.00 or less, no legally qualified guardian will be required, and where the value of the property is greater than $5,000.00 but less than $10,000.00, whether or not a legally qualified guardian of the property will be required shall be in the discretion of the judge of the probate court.

(c) If the natural guardian fails or refuses to qualify as guardian of the property when required pursuant to subsection (b) of this Code section, the judge of the probate court may appoint another guardian to receive the property without publishing a citation as is published in guardianship matters under other Code sections.
