Guardianship Explained by Elk Grove Attorney Christine FaulknerRead what our satisfied clients have to say about our Estate Planning Services.
Elk Grove attorney Christine Faulkner is experienced with handling legal matters relating to your family. Guardianship is one of the areas where Christine focuses her energy and attention to make this process as easy as possible for you and your family.
Guardianship comes up in a couple of different situations – 1) where a juvenile has a parent that can no longer take care of them for a variety of reasons, and the child is placed into the care of an appointed guardian or 2) where a parent can no longer make healthcare and financial decisions so a guardian must be appointed to these decisions for the child.
A child would generally be placed in the care of a guardian after the death or incapacity of both parents. If you speak with an Elk Grove Attorney who specializes in matters like guardianships, you can make sure that your children will be in the care of someone you making provisions for these matters while you are alive is critical so that your wishes are honored during a time of challenge and uncertainty.
Different Types of Guardianships That Your Elk Grove Attorney Can Help With
There are a couple different types of guardianships that your Elk Grove attorney assist you with:
Probate Guardianship of the Person: A guardian of the person is responsible for meeting the child’s basic needs, including protecting and safeguarding the child, and providing food, clothing, and shelter – as well as medical care and education. This is type one of the guardianships your Elk Grove attorney can help you with.
Probate Guardianship of the Estate: A guardian of the estate may typically be provided for when a child has inherited a large sum of money or property from a deceased parent. The guardian will manage the child’s financial affairs until the child reaches the age of majority (18 years), and in many cases the surviving parent will assume the role.
