What Are the Rules of Guardianship in California?

The duties of a guardian are significant and require the guardian to make decisions about the child’s education, medical treatment, and supervision. Because of this, the court does not take guardianship lightly and abides by a number of different ‘rules’ according to California State law.

Some of the most pertinent rules of guardianship include:

  • Custody is only granted to those deemed suitable by the court
  • Guardians must be able to provide care and guidance
  • The best interest of the child remains the top priority at all times
  • The child, especially over age 14, may be allowed to share their preferences
  • Drug testing may be required for the guardian

Actually obtaining guardianship can be a lengthy process. You may be required to submit numerous forms, along with submitting to a background check and a home visit from a social worker. Our legal team can work with you every step of the way to preserve your wishes and eliminate unnecessary delays.
