Guardianship Lawyer in Pasadena, California and Serving the Greater Los
Guardianship proceedings are instituted to obtain custody awards on behalf
of non-parents for the benefit of minor children. Guardianship proceedings
are handled by the Probate Department of the Superior Court. A guardianship
is a court proceeding in which a guardian is appointed by the court to
protect the person or estate of a minor child. Guardianship today is usually
established by relatives or other caring adults to provide stability and
care for minor children whose parents fail to provide these essentials
to them. Petitions for guardianship of the person can be accompanied by
a petition for temporary guardianship where there is an immediate need
to protect the child from neglect or from suddenly being removed from
someone with whom the child has been living with and with whom the child
has emotionally bonded.
