LOS ANGELES CHILD CUSTODY AND GUARDIANSHIP LAWYER

Some of these children find they are left with grandparents or some other relative because their parents were unable or unwilling to care for them. There are a number of reasons why grandparents and other relative caregivers find themselves raising these children such as: substance abuse by parents, unemployed parents, parents who are incarcerated, or even the unfortunate death of one or both parents. Whatever the reason, you may want to have the legal authority to provide medical care for your grandchildren, enroll them in school, and receive public government benefits and other public assistance. You may also be extremely concerned about having the ability to protect these children from future custody challenges and create stability for your relationship.
