Three Types of Guardianship in California
There are three types of guardianship in the state:
- Guardian of a person
- Guardian of an estate
- Guardian of a person and a state
Each case is different. You may have questions about which form of guardianship is best for the case you face. Our Temecula family lawyers can answer your questions for you and help you reach a swift decision.
Is Adoption the Same As Guardianship?
Adoption and legal guardianship are different. The main difference is the court cannot terminate an adoption, but can terminate a legal guardianship if it is seen as being in the child’s best interests.
Status as a legal guardian does, however, enable the guardian to provide care for the child by:
- Enrolling the child in school
- Including the child in a medical insurance plan
- Making decisions for the child’s well-being
- Obtaining state financial assistance
