Guardianship Attorney in the Bay Area

Priorities change once you have children. As a parent, nothing is more precious than seeing your children grow up into healthy and responsible adults. However, life is unpredictable. You might be young and well today, but tomorrow is not always guaranteed.

To prepare for the unexpected, consult a Bay Area Guardianship attorney who can help you make plans for your minor children.

Having a potential guardian for your minor children is much more comforting. You will have peace of mind knowing your children will be in good hands, no matter what happens.

Guardianship and Estate Planning

Aside from appointing a guardian, there are several ways to make sure your heirs will be left with enough resources for their needs. Consult Anthoor Law Group for comprehensive estate planning services, such as:

  • Last Will and Testament
  • Special Needs Trust
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Health Care Directive
  • Revocable Living Trust

How Are Guardians Appointed?

Appointing a guardian is only necessary if the parents are not around or are incapable of caring for their minor children. Often, the court may choose a close relative or friend of the family to be the guardian. Alternatively, parents can choose who they would rather have as a guardian for their minor children through a Will.

At Anthoor Law Group, we encourage our clients to appoint their preferred guardian through a Will. This is the best way to ensure that the appointed guardian for your minor children is a trusted relative or friend. You will be assured that even if something unexpected happens to you or your spouse, the care of your young children will be left to someone who is trustworthy. If you want to proceed with the process, set up a consultation with our Bay Area Guardianship attorney today.

The Difference Between Guardianship and Conservatorship

Guardianship and Conservatorship serve a similar purpose. Both of them are established for the purpose of having a capable individual take care of the needs and affairs of another individual. The difference, however, is that guardians are generally appointed for the care of minor children. Conservatorships, on the other hand, are arranged for the care of adults who are incapable of managing their own affairs.

Guardians can be appointed as a guardian of a person or an estate. Being a guardian of a person refers to being in charge of the primary care and custody of a minor child. Basically, you have to act as the parent. On the other hand, being a guardian of the estate means you will be in charge of managing the assets and finances of the minor child. Conservatorships also have the same classification.

What Happens If No Guardian Was Appointed?

If you die without a Will, or even if you have one, but you did not appoint a guardian for your minor children, the court will hold a Guardianship proceeding during probate. The court will generally look at the closest kin or a close family friend who might be capable of taking care of the children. This would include the grandparents, aunts, uncles, or even godparents.

Securing Your Children’s Future

While the court can appoint a guardian in case you did not make arrangements, you have no way of knowing if the court will choose the right person. If you want to make sure your children are taken care of by a person you trust, then it is best to appoint a guardian as you come up with an estate plan.
