Guardianship is a court process to legally appoint a person to make medical or financial decisions for another person. While Guardianship is sometimes necessary, the process and/or procedures can be very cumbersome. There are many reasons to seek a Guardianship.  Some of the most common are as follows.

  • Seeking to obtain guardianship of a person and or the estate of a person with a disability.
  • Disputes over who has guardianship or the person with a disability has objected to guardianship.
  • Bringing cross-petitions for guardianship on behalf of family members or others who want to serve as legal guardian.
  • Creating estate plans for those who are not capable of making sound decisions.

The most common examples of guardianship can include a child with special needs turning of legal age or an adult losing capacity to make personal decisions suffering from the effects of dementia, an accident, or stroke.  There are also instances where time is of the essence and a favorable resolution is required right away.
