El Dorado Hills Guardianship Attorney

Estate Planning in Sacramento, El Dorado, & Placer Counties

A guardianship goes into effect when the parents of a minor child pass away or become unable to take care of them. The court then appoints a guardian to take care of the minor child. By discussing your situation with an El Dorado Hills estate planning lawyer, you can get started in setting up a guardianship to protect your minor child. Although the process can be confusing, emotional, and time-consuming, you can find solace in knowing you are providing a future for your child or children. As your estate planning attorney, you can expect compassionate and thoughtful guidance for your case.

Types of a Guardianship

The name of the appointed guardian can be provided within a proper estate plan. This is the best way to provide a stable future for your children in the event of your passing.

In our consultations, we establish two different kinds of guardianship:

  • Guardianship of the Person: The appointed guardian is responsible for the overall well-being of the child. From deciding what school they attend to managing their day-to-day activities, the guardian plays the part of the parent in this scenario.
  • Guardianship of the Estate: The appointed guardian is responsible for managing the child's finances and estate up until they reach the age of 18.

These two types of guardianships can be managed by either one individual or two different individuals. Guardianships terminate once the child turns 18 or by the order of the court.
