What Can A Guardianship Do?
Establishing a legal guardianship of a loved one can provide protection for them in many situations. Our experienced lawyers are proven advocates for the incapacitated and individuals with special needs, offering experienced, tailored legal services for a wide range of incapacity issues, including:
- Traveling with special needs individuals
- Mental illness and mental health guardianships
- Protection for individuals with physical or mental disabilities
- Plans for handling dementia as a family
- Taking guardianship or incapacity cases to court
- Emergency temporary guardianships or involuntary guardianships
- Caregiver resources in the community
- Contesting guardianships
- Guardian advocacy for people with developmental disabilities
- Serving as appellate counsel
It is important for the guardian to fully understand their responsibilities in these matters, as the court will be overseeing the guardianship. Discussing this with an attorney can make all of this clear so you can move forward confidently.
