Assuming, we reside out of US and our child is a US citizen by birth. We wish to send our child to US boarding school at age of 16 for 11th and 12th grade. Then we wish our child pursues undergraduate and graduate studies in the US
Boarding school provides all requirements for minors such as food / laundry etc. However our child graduates from boarding school a few months before turning 18.
Here is our issue
We don't know any one in the US who can act as guardian or even a
Our child cannot travel to India since India country
does not grant visa to children if parents do not attend visa
interview. Thus child has to wait till child turns 18 years old.
What can we do for a few months (3 months) when child has graduated out of boarding school but not yet turned 18 ?
Are there any professional temporary guardianship services that we can pay for temporary care ?
Can we pay the boarding school to remain in the form for 3 months past graduation ?
Is foster care the only option ? How would it work ?
Since the family is making such a serious effort to provide the minor with a good education, I presume the minor will be going on to university. One approach is to wait until the minor has been admitted to a university, and then contact the guidance office of the university for housing options near the university. Private landlords near the university will have experience with students who need housing for a few months, and with students who are minors.
Another option is to seek summer jobs or internships related to the student's intended field of study. Companies or organizations who are in the habit of providing such jobs/internships may be able to advise about housing.
