Registered mail sent to a minor child may be received by the minor child's parent or court appointed guardian. If a minor child signs for registered mail this is an invalid acceptance since the individual is under the age of 18. There are no legal exceptions for someone under 18. If the registered mail is for the child, only the parent or their guardian may receive the letter. The parent or legal guardian may reject the registered mail on behalf of the minor child.
