Rancho Cucamonga Guardianship ATTORNEY

Rancho Cucamonga Guardianship Attorney

There are numerous situations that might cause the need to assign a legal guardian for a child. This may occur if the child is unsafe with the parents, a parent is incarcerated, or a parent has passed away. Guardianship is not the same as adoption. The adopting person becomes the legal parent of the child with the same duties and privileges as a birth parent. 

Securing the Best Interests of the Child

In Guardianship, however, the guardian may have many of the same rights as a parent but the child legally retains his or her own parents. No matter what situation you find yourself in, a knowledgeable guardianship attorney in Rancho Cucamonga can make all the difference in ensuring the safety and well-being of the child in question.

There is no requirement that the legal guardian be a relative but often a family member steps forward. 

Sometimes guardianship is necessary in order to include the child on the guardian’s healthcare policy and the guardianship provides that the guardian can make decisions regarding the child’s education, medical care, and dental care. A guardianship can continue until the child reaches the age of 18 (becomes an adult) or can be terminated earlier if a judge deems that it is safe to do so. I have many years of experience in guardianship practice and can represent persons seeking to become guardians or parents intending to oppose a guardianship.

I look forward to discussing the details of your case with you. Call my firm at (909) 317-3213 or fill out the online contact form today.
