If the Guardianship is for a child that is not a resident of your state or county, your Attorney will advise.
There are two types of California Guardianships. The first is a Guardianship over the Person, which may occur in two instances. One instance is when the parents of a minor elect to voluntarily allow a third person, usually a relative, to take the responsibility of raising their child. A second instance is when the parents are incapable of raising their child and a third party believes that it is in the child’s best interest to be raised by him or herself.
The second type of California Guardianship is Guardianship over the Estate of a minor. This usually occurs when a minor receives assets from a deceased person, either through a court procedure (probate) or the minor is a beneficiary of a life insurance policy. If a minor receives property, he/she must have an adult placed in charge of his/her property. Money allocated for a minor is usually accomplished by way of a blocked account, which would become available when the minor becomes an adult.
Guardianship over the Estate of a minor requires full representation. Legal Action Workshop will help to create a blocked account for a minor, but does not help with a Guardianship over the Estate when it requires a bond.
