Types of Guardianships in California

Our experienced guardianship attorneys can help explain the function of each type of guardianship and advise you on which one is appropriate under your particular circumstances.
When Filing for Guardianship Is Necessary
Guardianship may be necessary when a parent is unable to care for their child, either through illness, personal issues, or other situations. A grandparent, relative, or another individual who is concerned with the child’s well-being may petition the court to be named as a guardian. In some situations, the parent involved may have selected a specific person or relative for this duty, such as when the parent names a guardian in a will.
