Guardianship & Conservatorship Attorneys in Oceanside

Dedicated to Protecting Your Loved Ones

In a family crisis, grandparents may need to take legal responsibility for a grandchild through guardianship. Elderly parents who cannot take care of themselves or a special-needs adult may need someone to assume financial responsibility for their affairs through a conservatorship.

At Palmer Rodak & Associates, we provide legal services to help families address life's challenges. An estate planning lawyer at our firm can help you establish a guardianship or conservatorship depending on your situation and your needs.

Contact us online or call (760) 573-2223 to discuss your family situation with our Oceanside guardianship and conservatorship lawyers.

Sound Advice throughout the Legal Process

When a child or dependent adult is at risk due to illness, drug problems, jail time, or a divorce, family members may apply to the court to establish a guardianship or conservatorship. The court will assign someone to investigate the situation and report back. The degree of the relationship, age, mental capacity, and many other factors can come into play.

At Palmer Rodak & Associates, we help clients understand the legal process, manage expectations, and understand the reality of taking responsibility for a loved one, from providing a place to live and caring for their daily needs to handling their money and other critical decisions.

Our Oceanside guardianship and conservatorship lawyers offer sound advice and counsel concerning a broad range of matters, including:

  • Education
  • Medical care
  • Personal needs
  • Paying bills
  • Making investments
  • Tax reporting referrals

When the Fiduciary Duty Has Been Breached

Legal guardians and conservators have a "fiduciary duty" to the minors or disabled adults whose personal and financial interests they represent. Any breach of fiduciary responsibility may call for a lawsuit. We handle this type of estate litigation, representing conservators, guardians, executors, administrators, trustees, or family members. Our goal is to provide cost-effective, efficient representation that protects the rights and interests of our clients.
