Public Counsel runs a self-help guardianship clinic that assists with legal guardianship petitions for adults caring for children. The clinic also assists with petitions for visitation and termination of guardianship. The clinic is typically held at The Stanley Mosk Courthouse, but due to the current health crisis, our clinic is operating remotely.
For assistance, please call (213) 385-2977, ext. 502. We are open for calls every Monday.
The clinic’s full name is the Skadden Arps “Pro Per” Guardianship Clinic. “Pro per” is Latin for “for oneself,” and is used to refer to a person who represents themself in court.
