Guardianship

If a loved one has been incapacitated by illness or accident, he or she may require a legal guardian.  Guardianship is administered through a lifetime probate proceeding.  It is necessary when the incapacitated person did not have powers of attorney or advance directives in place prior to a crisis situation. We have more than 25 years of experience helping people obtain guardianship of the person or guardianship of the estate of  a loved one. We can put our experience to work for you.

There are several types of legal guardians.  The most common is guardian of the person.  This provides you legal standing to make important decisions regarding the healthcare and treatment that your loved one receives.  The second type is guardian of the estate.  This provides you power to make decisions about your loved one’s assets and property.  Both types of guardianship can be held by the same person, or each can be held by a different person, depending on the needs of your loved one.  Other types of guardianships include limited guardianship and temporary guardianship.
