Sacramento Guardianship Lawyers

There are two kinds of guardianship actions. One deals with juvenile dependency. That is, children who become wards of the state when their parents are unable to care for them, or when a child’s parents are deceased. The other is commonly referred to as a Probate Guardianship. This is when someone or a couple petition to the court to take over the care and custody of a child from their parents or caretakers.
