Establishing Guardianship

Most parents want to make the right choices for their children, but there are some circumstances when a friend or family member needs to step in to help for a short period of time. A guardianship becomes necessary when that short period becomes an extended — or permanent — period.

Our lawyers at Foster Hsu, LLP, can help you take the right steps so that you can provide the best care for your children. Call our San Jose office at 408-841-7200 to make an appointment.

What Guardianship Can Help You Do

Typically, someone will seek guardianship when either the children's biological or adoptive parents have passed away or their parents are not able to provide adequate care. Guardianship allows a person to help the child with important tasks, including:

  • Enrolling in school
  • Going to the doctor and other medical care providers
  • Getting permission for activities and trips
  • Being involved in sports or other extracurricular activities
