When Do You Need A Guardianship?
When someone loses the capacity to manage his or her own affairs or estate, he or she may need a guardian. Guardians are appointed — which is why it is important to make sure your power of attorney is properly executed before a family member loses capacity.
Our lawyers have helped family members get someone appointed as a guardian of another person or an estate. We also have experience helping family members contest a guardianship and see if they can get the appointment revoked.
Whether you need a guardianship or are questioning who was appointed, we can help. We can explain how the guardianship process works and what the court considers before it appoints someone. Our attorneys will make sure you understand all of your options and that the guardianship process is handled properly.
The need for a guardianship often happens when you least expect it. This can be an emotional time in your life — we can make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible and that all options are explored to find the best outcome for you and your family.
