A Recent Satisfied Customer Had This
I would like to let you know how very satisfied I was as a customer using this website. I needed to show proof that I had temporary guardianship of my niece to go to school. The school was giving me the run around about getting a document like yours. I was even directed to go to the local court house to get an attorney which I had no time for.

Thanks again! Naisha T.
Important provisions our California guardianship form contain:
In most situations, you will need to provide a hospital, doctor, dentist or other health professional with comprehensive medical information before any minor can be treated. A medical information form and healthcare power of attorney are included with our guardianship forms. The medical information form allows the parent to detail any medical conditions the child has, list any medications the child is taking, and provide insurance and parents contact information.
Caution with Other Forms
It is strongly suggested you do not use a form with the title

The term temporary guardianship is only used, recognized, and issued by California courts and cannot be issued by the parents.
The correct title for the guardian form should be:
