Thousands of children in California need legal guardians because their parents have died, abandoned them or are otherwise unable to care for them. The Guardianship Book helps readers obtain a legal guardianship without a lawyer. The book provides readers with everything they need to: decide whether to obtain a legal guardianship; use alternate forms if a legal guardianship is not practical; obtain a guardianship for finances, for personal and physical care of a minor, or both; prepare, file and have guardianship papers served; appear before a judge; obtain a temporary guardianship in an urgent situation; deal with institutions and agencies with or without a guardianship; end a guardianship and more. The book includes all the required forms and instructions readers will need.
