Guardianship assistance may be available to those who qualify

Previously on this blog we discussed how guardianship differs from adoption. For many California families, a guardianship makes sense. It allows a child to obtain a safe and stable home while at the same time preserving parental rights. Although most, if not all, parental responsibilities are assumed by the guardian while the guardianship is in place, parents still have the opportunity to try to terminate the guardianship when they feel that they are fit to care for the child once again.

These matters, some of which are financial in nature, are about so much more than money. They are also about children's emotional stability, closure, and ending a relationship with fairness.
