For more than 25 years, we have stood as strong advocates in local courtrooms throughout Southern California to obtain the most favorable outcome possible. Our lawyers have represented numerous clients and provide dynamic and advocacy for clients in California adoption and guardianship cases. We are well prepared to guide you through these processes:

California Adoptions

An adoption creates a new legal parent child relationship and terminates the parental rights of the biological parent. An adoption is permanent and essentially takes away the biological parents' rights to the child. When the adoption process is being finalized in the courts, you should feel happy and relieved that your attorney provided respected representation which brought the adoption to a positive conclusion. We guide clients every step of the way with a focus on obtaining the best result efficiently and affordably.

Understanding California Guardianships

A guardianship is a court order wherein the court appoints a person to act as legal guardian of a child when the child's parents can no longer adequately care for the minor. Every minor must have an adult who is responsible for the child. The need for a guardianship often occurs when a parent has failed to care for the minor child due to substance or alcohol abuse, or possibly caused a reasonable fear of child abuse, abandoned the minor or passed away.

When one wants to distinguish the difference between a guardianship versus an adoption, the most important fact is that an adoption is permanent, whereas a guardianship is considered temporary and typically ends when the minor becomes an adult.
