Guardianship

While a child's natural parents generally have substantial rights to make important decisions about the care and upbringing of their child, there are times when a child's rights to a stable household override his or her parents' rights. Guardianship is a proceeding filed in probate court giving an adult control of a minor child who is not their own. There are two kinds of guardianship: Guardianship of the Person and Guardianship of the Estate. In California guardianship over the person is more common. Once guardianship is established, the guardian has full legal and physical custody of the child.
