The firm handles guardianship cases for clients seeking to protect children in their families who are not receiving proper parental care.  A case such as this may involve a grandparent, aunt, uncle or other relative filing for guardianship because the child's parent is addicted to drugs or otherwise endangering the child.


A guardianship is a court proceeding in which a judge gives a responsible adult custody of a minor child, power over the child's estate, or both.  Most guardianships are handled in probate court, but if a child is a dependent of the juvenile court, only the juvenile court may appoint a legal guardian for that child.  Since a guardian has the legal right to make decisions on behalf of the child, compliance with statutory requirements is very important.


Ms. Engfelt is experienced in these matters and will guide you through every step of this complicated process.


Please contact the Law Office of Maria Caroline Engfelt to discuss your guardianship case.
