A probate guardianship is when a court allows someone other than the child’s parent to obtain custody of the child, manage the child’s property, or both. If you are just looking to have custody and it is deemed necessary and convenient, a probate court can order guardianship of the child. However, if you are looking to manage the child’s property, the court also can order a guardianship of the child’s estate.
A probate guardianship of the person is typically set up because a child is living with an adult who is not the child’s parent, and the adult needs a court order to make decisions on the child’s behalf.
With a probate guardianship in place, the guardian can:
- Enroll the child in school
- Obtain medical care
- Make necessary legal decisions for the child
Guardianships in Juvenile Dependency Court
Guardianships can also be created in the juvenile dependency courts. Taking guardianship over a child is a selfless and caring act. When a child becomes a dependent of the court, a caring individual may step in and petition for guardianship. Our guardianship attorneys in Folsom can walk you through the process and help you fight for a favorable outcome.
