Guardianship / Adoption

What is Guardianship?

California guardianship most commonly applies to children. In California, a guardian is appointed by a court to be responsible for a person under the age of eighteen. Guardians are commonly appointed when a parent is terminally ill, unfit, or upon the death of both parents. Guardianship is found in three categories; guardian of the person, guardian of the estate, and guardian of the person and the estate. At the Law Office of Bowman & Associates, we can advise you on the rights and responsibilities of guardianship variations, and can file and pursue an appropriate petition in court. We can also advise you on alternatives to guardianship that may easily accomplish your goals.

What is Conservatorship?

Conservatorships most commonly apply to adults. If a family member suffers from a mental disability, is not competent, or is no longer able to handle their own affairs, a California court may appoint a conservator to manage that person’s affairs. We can advise you on the rights and responsibilities of conservatorship, as well has pursue a petition with the court. We can similarly advise you on alternatives to conservatorship to accomplish your goals.

Being an Active Duty Military Member, currently Stationed in NY, I did not have easy access to legal assistance. Many attorneys in the Sacramento area did not want to deal with the cross jurisdiction issues with my case. The Law Offices of Bowman and Associates (Jennifer Hunt in particular) not only assisted me with my case but took off running with it. For starters their staff is very respectful and understanding. I was kept well informed of all possible scenarios. I would definitely utilize their services if ever needed again. I like the professionalism and personal care they utilized throughout my case...
