Long Beach Guardianship Attorney

Maria Vittoria and her team have handled a large number of guardianship petitions in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. Upon petition an adult is appointed by the court to become the legal guardian of a minor. During the duration of the guardianship the parental rights of the child’s parents are suspended. Most petitions for guardianship are filed by a relative of the child. The petitioning relative must show that the parents of the child are unfit to have custody of the child. The guardianship continues until the child turns eighteen unless either parent files a petition to terminate the guardianship and, if successful, his or her parental rights are restored.
