Attentive California attorneys help responsible adults become guardians for minors

We are committed to advocating for the best interests of children, helping to establish guardianships in which they can receive reliable and compassionate care. The attorneys at Ann F. VanDePol help clients to:

  • Appoint a guardian — It is important to name a trusted person to take over guardianship duties for your children in case the need ever arises. When a guardian is not named in advance of a parent’s death or incapacitation, the court may appoint someone the parent might not have chosen. You want to select a guardian who is willing and able to offer care and will raise your children according to your parental philosophies.
  • Become a guardian — When a child you love is in need of a guardian they can rely on, our attorneys can help you seek the legal right to take over these responsibilities. We can present your case in any necessary court hearings, working to demonstrate that you are suited to become a minor’s caretaker.

Our attorneys will address your guardianship concerns and answer any questions you may have. Protecting the well-being of children is always a top priority.
