Guardianship

We offer representation for the legal process of appointing a “competent adult,” or guardian, to be responsible for the care, custody, and control of a “vulnerable or incapacitated person,” or ward.  Our pre-need guardianship lawyers are also qualified to help you nominate a pre-need guardian for a minor child, elderly loved one or anyone unable to make decisions for themselves through a written declaration.  This ensures that your children and other loved ones are looked after by someone you trust if you should become incapacitated or pass on.  This benefit is open to both biological and adoptive situations.

How Guardianship Works

A guardian has the right to make healthcare and financial decisions for the ward, so such a protection is typically only for minor children and those with physical or mental limitations.  If the parents of any children are still alive and able to do so, they can retain their parental rights, provide approval on any legal measures, and continue supporting their children financially.  Guardianship can also be used to give parents legal liability for any assets their children inherit. Our guardianship lawyer is happy to walk you through the process.

A guardian can be any legal and competent adult, though keep in mind that the person may ask the court for relief of their responsibilities at any time.  The ward in turn has the right to be present at any legal proceedings that concern their guardianship and obtain their own representation should they object to anything.
