San Diego Child Guardianship Attorney
The state of California takes the welfare of children very seriously and will go to great lengths to see to their care. If there is evidence that a person is being neglected, abused or mistreated in any way, a family member may petition the court to become that person's legal guardian.
These cases tend to be complex and emotional matters. At the San Diego, California, law firm of Anthony C. Starks, Attorney at Law, I will help you through the process in a way that minimizes conflict and serves the best interests of the children.
Navigating a Difficult Process
I have been practicing family law throughout San Diego County for over 25 years and know that the courts do not take separating a child from his or her parents lightly and that the child's parents will be fighting strenuously to keep their children at home. I will make the strongest argument possible for you to take guardianship of the child and do everything I can to see that the best interests of the child are served.
The court has many options in these cases. It may give you temporary guardianship while the child's parents take steps to regain child custody, including rehabilitation, parenting classes or any other issues that may need to be resolved. The court may grant you permanent guardianship or may deny your request. It is in the court's hands to decide what is best for the child.
