A guardianship is a legal proceeding where one individual is appointed by a court to exercise the legal rights and care for another individual, usually a minor child. A guardianship may be established when parents are unable to provide care for their child.
At the Aubry Law Firm, we help clients through the process of setting up a guardianship in California.
Setting Up a Guardianship in California
When a guardianship is established, one individual has the legal responsibility to care for a child under the age of 18. A guardianship is typically established when the child’s parents are unable to provide care due to:
• Drug or alcohol abuse
• Serious illness
• Other reasons
Our law firm can help you determine what type of guardianship is most appropriate for your situation. A guardianship can be set up to protect an individual, an estate, or both.
