Law Firm Experienced In Foreign Guardianships

Children are vulnerable, but so are parents. If you aren’t sure that you or the other parent will be able to take care of a child in the U.S., you may need to consider a foreign guardianship.

At the Law Offices of Connie Yi, PC, in the Bay Area, we have the estate planning knowledge to help you figure out what arrangements are needed for your family and put them into place.

Give us a call to get started in a confidential consultation with a lawyer who is experienced in handling international estate issues.

What Types Of Legal Requirements Do You Need To Meet?

The process of creating a foreign guardianship is fairly formal. For one thing, the proposed guardian has to file papers with the court. Parents can nominate someone, but ultimately it’s up to the court to decide whom to appoint, based on the best interest of the child.

Of course, tricky issues can arise involving immigration or citizenship status. For example, you may want your child to return to your country of origin in certain circumstances.

California law does allow foreign guardianships. But it has to be done right — especially if you are a foreign national and want to take a kid back to your home country.

Our law firm has the knowledge needed to help you handle foreign wealth transfers and make the guardianship arrangements that makes sense for your family.
