Irvine Guardianship Attorneys

Advocating for the Best Interests of Irvine Families

In most cases, a child’s parents are responsible for taking care of them. To ensure parents can effectively fulfill their responsibilities, they have the authority to make legal decisions for their child regarding healthcare, contractual agreements, and more. Similarly, the parents or caretakers of an adult who lacks the mental capacity to make their own legal decisions must have the freedom to exercise legal authority on behalf of them.

Guardianship issues in family law can be complicated and challenging to sort through. That is why you should retain the professional services of an experienced Irvine guardianship attorney for quality legal counsel. At Sullivan Law & Associates, we have a proud history of delivering reliable legal representation for O.C.families in the promotion of their best interests. If you are an Orange County resident who is seeking legal advice regarding legal guardianship, you can benefit from the dedicated services of our legal team.

Contact Sullivan Law & Associates at (949) 565-2793 today to learn more about how we can promote your legal interests.

Navigating California Guardianship Laws

Under California law, the court can appoint a legal guardian to make decisions on behalf of minor children and incapacitated adults. Relatives and unrelated parental figures may obtain legal guardianship over a minor child if doing so would be in the child’s best interest. If the grant of guardianship would interfere with the parental rights of the child’s current living parents, the court must determine whether parental custody of the child would be harmful to the child’s safety and well-being.

We can help you navigate through the following guardianship issues:

  • Temporary guardianship
  • Minor children guardianship
  • Parental rights litigation
  • Incapacitated adult guardianship
  • Disability and incapacitation hearings
  • Terminating guardianship
