Guardianship Lawyers in Roseville

Effectively Serving Clients all across Roseville, Sacramento & Surrounding Areas

While a child's natural parents generally have substantial rights to make important decisions about the care and upbringing of their child, there are times when a child's rights to a stable household override his or her parents' rights.

At Cecil Cianci Law, PC, a knowledgeable family law attorney can help you pursue guardianship over the child you care for who needs greater protection than they are getting from their parents. To learn more about guardianship, contact our Roseville guardianship lawyers to schedule a consultation.

You can reach Cecil Cianci Law, PC today at (916) 675-3866 to learn more about our firm and how we can assist you.

Pursuing Child Custody through a Guardianship Action

Guardianship is a proceeding by which someone other than a child's legal parents can seek custodial rights because one or both parents are unfit to take responsibility for the child. While grandparents, aunts, and uncles are the people most commonly granted guardianship over children, other relatives and non-relatives can also pursue custody when appropriate.

If you are concerned about a child whom you believe is in need of a legal guardian, we can go over your options and pursue a guardianship action if appropriate.

Guardianship of minor children can also be provided for in the parents' estate plans. If you have been named as a guardian of the child of someone who has died, one of our family and probate lawyers can help you pursue legal recognition of that status.

Covering the Full Range of Legal Options

Guardianship is not the only option for grandparents who are concerned about their relationships with their grandchildren. Grandparents can also intervene in a pending divorce or paternity case to seek certain visitation rights.

Aggressive Pursuit of Your Family Law Goals

Contact our Roseville guardianship attorneys to discuss whether guardianship is an appropriate strategy for protecting your grandchildren and your relationship with them, or whether another approach may be more successful. Call (916) 675-3866 today.
