A guardianship may be recommended to clients who have a spouse, parent, or child who are or become incapacitated without a power of attorney in place and, therefore, are unable to manage their personal needs, property, and/or financial affairs and where the individual also does not understand this inability. This might include people who are incapacitated by reason of minority developmental disability, accidentally caused conditions, or degenerative age conditions.
Our goal in the guardianship process is to have a court name a guardian for the incapacitated person. This guardian will then be able to manage the individual’s affairs and money in order to protect his or her well being and assets and manage the care of the incapacitated person.
We invite you to contact us today to review your situation and determine if this type of proceeding may be necessary to protect your loved one.
