Guardianship

Practice Walking

We are here to help you care for your loved one.

Guardianship is sought when an individual does not have the ability to care for their own needs and someone must be appointed to legally make decisions for them.

There are several different types of guardianship.

  1. Guardian advocacy - When an individual has a development or other disability that occurred prior to the age of eighteen (18), a guardianship advocacy may be necessary.

  2. Guardian of a minor child - when a minor child suffers the passing of both natural parents, a guardian may need to be appointed to legally make decisions for the child and care for the child’s needs.  Also, if a minor child receives a settlement or inheritance over a certain value, a guardian must be appointed to manage the funds for the child’s benefit.

  3. Guardianship of an adult - if an individual can no longer care for their own needs, a guardian may need to be appointed to make decisions on their behalf.
