In California, guardianship applies to children whose parents are unable to care for them for a variety of reasons. Essentially, a guardian is appointed by the court to be responsible for an individual younger than 18. It is important to work with a knowledgeable Roseville guardianship attorney.

Situations that might give rise to the necessity of legal guardianship can include:
- A parent is terminally ill
- A parent is in jail
- A history of substance abuse
- A parent has become mentally or physically incapacitated
- The death of both parents
