Guardianship Laws in California
Upland Guardianship Lawyer
In the state of California, a guardianship action is not considered a family law action but rather occurs in the California probate courts. A guardianship action is requested when a non-parent seeks to take guardianship of a child and must prove to the court that the action is necessary and that the parent or parents pose a detriment to the child's well-being. The experienced family law attorneys at the Law Offices of Heidi Romeo & Associates in Upland understand issues involving children and have represented grandparents, aunts, uncles, and siblings who have sought to obtain guardianship of a beloved child.
