What is Probate Guardianship in California?

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.

Custody of the child - Probate court may order guardianship, or custody, of a child if it is deemed convenient and necessary.

The child's estate - The court is also able to order guardianship of the child’s estate in certain situations. This would allow a guardian to manage the child's property.

Guardianship of the person - 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.

Probate guardianship mainly allows a guardian to make these decisions on a child's behalf:

  • 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 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.
