Guardianship for Minor Children
Who Will Care for Your Children?
If you have children under 18 years old, one of the most important and
challenging decisions you will have to make is deciding who will care
for them if you become unable. Being a guardian is much like being a parent
who is responsible for all aspects of raising a child. At Goldfarb &
Luu, we help you make this decision by explaining your options in real-life
terms and guide you through practicable considerations.
California recognizes two types of guardianships: over the person and over
the estate. One guardian can assume both roles or they can be done by
two different people. A guardian is nominated by a parent, typically in
a Will, and appointed by a court. Where there is no Will, the selection
is made by the court.
Whether you are looking to designate a guardian in your Will or thinking
of becoming a guardian yourself, Goldfarb & Luu can help. While our
office is located in Tarzana, we extend our legal services to a much broader
area, including Los Angeles County, Ventura County and Orange County.
Becoming a Guardian
Being a guardian is a huge responsibility, which is why it is important
to seek legal support if you have been named one. To become a guardian,
you must complete paperwork and attend court proceedings.
