Nuts and Bolts of SIJS in California Probate Courts [01:30:25]

In California, SIJS orders have traditionally been sought in the highest volume in probate courts through guardianship petitions. A guardianship is appropriate when a child is not able to live with a parent and needs an adult family member or friend to serve as their legal guardian. This panel will provide the nuts and bolts of filing a guardianship petition in California and the process for requesting SIJS findings in probate court. It will include important recent developments, including new case law, new judicial council forms, and the availability of SIJS-based guardianships for children up to age 21.
