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.

  • “Amazing Family Law Attorney!”
    I would strongly recommend Mrs. Andrews for any family law issues. She was my attorney for over a year. In that time she was focused and diligent. Not once did any paperwork get rejected for clerical errors. Mrs. Andrews worked tirelessly and made it a point to conduct my case in the most cost-effective manner possible for me.

  • “Tiffany Gave Me a Voice!”
    I hired Tiffany to help me in a custody dispute with my ex regarding my young son. During the entirety of my previous relationship and even after separation my ex had intimidated me and dominated any decision made regarding my son. He bullied me and used his financial advantage to make me feel that I didn't stand a chance against him when he filed to take majority custody of our son. I went into the custody dispute feeling weak but as a mother, I would go to any length, at any cost to fight for my son. Tiffany and her staff gave me so much confidence and ensured me that they would be my voice and help me fight for my rights as a mother and that is exactly what she did. Tiffany was extremely thorough, knowledgeable, compassionate, and honest. She did her job and she did it well. Tiffany was very aggressive while staying very professional in front of the judge. I walked out of the courtroom feeling empowered and protected. My family cannot ever thank her and her staff enough. I would recommend her to anyone that finds themselves in a family dispute. She will give you the justice you and your family deserve.

  • “Divorce & Separation Advice Session”
    She was great, put my mind at ease. I had a few short questions, not enough to warrant a face-to-face with a lawyer at a high price and she took care of them. Precise, knowledgable and friendly too.

  • “Protected My Interests”
    Tiffany has been dealing with my divorce for going on 3 years. Just wrapped up last week. Unfortunately, that's how long my divorce took. But she stuck by and fought for me even though the divorce laws are skewed to basically screw me. In the end, we were able to get a final judgment that I was comfortable with. She was always reachable and responded timely. All in all, she is a great lawyer who will do what's in your best interest.
