When the natural parents of a child are unable for any reason to continue providing direct care for their child, other concerned persons with an established relationship to the child – for example, a relative, god-parent, teacher, or even simply a close friend of the family – may apply to the court for legal guardianship of the child.

Naturally, the authorities want to be certain that it is in the best interest of the child for the guardianship to be awarded. Courts consider a lot of factors besides merely the wishes of the child and the applicant for legal guardianship.

The Guardianship Lawyers at the Fischer & Van Thiel, LLP Oceanside, CA Office are extremely experienced in helping people resolve legal guardianship applications favorably. We can help you navigate the application process with ease.

Attaining Legal Guardianship of a Child in San Marcos, CA

At Fischer & Van Thiel, we suggest that anyone considering making an application for legal guardianship should do their best to prepare for any inquiry into their fitness to assume the role of a legal guardian for the child.

The better prepared you are, the better your chances of success will be. Our team can help you prepare a persuasive case to help you win.

The Court Will Assess Your Parental Fitness as a Legal Guardian:

 Reasons why the natural parents of the child are no longer able to continue raising the child
Whether the applicant is a family relative of the child
How long the applicant has known the child, and the closeness of the relationship
Whether the applicant fully understands the legal obligations they will be subject to
Whether there are any formal objections to the guardianship application from any party
Whether the applicant would be considered a suitable role model for the child
The financial position of the applicant
Whether the applicant has any associations that may be considered detrimental
Whether the applicant has any prior experience in raising children

Even when you think there wouldn’t be any obstacles in your way, you’d be surprised how often certain overlooked information can cause disruptions in the process, and sometimes even result in the rejection of the application. Legal assistance is strongly recommended.

Building a Strong Legal Guardianship Case

Should we take on your case, we recommend that you disclose to your lawyer anything you believe may have a bearing on the case.

For example, if you have any prior convictions or if you are currently the defendant in a civil lawsuit, these conditions could be expected to possibly come into play.

You don’t need to worry, because anything you tell your lawyer is protected by attorney-client privilege, but it’s best for us to be completely aware of any factors that could complicate the process.

Obtaining legal guardianship isn’t always difficult, but it can be. The number one reason why applicants can come away from court disappointed is that they weren’t adequately prepared. When you work with Fischer & Van Thiel, you are putting your case in capable hands.
