Protecting Your Loved Ones Through Guardianship
You may find yourself in the position where you need to make decisions for and manage the personal care and finances of a family member. These responsibilities may fall to the adult child of a parent who can no longer manage his or her own affairs. Parents of children with special needs find themselves in this role when their child becomes an adult. Our lawyers can help you obtain the legal authority to serve in this role. The following are examples of the types of services we provide:
- Guardianships of adults and minors
- Guardianships with authority for antipsychotic medicine (commonly referred to as “Rogers” guardianships)
- Modifications, extensions and dissolution of guardianships or conservatorships
- Petitions for temporary guardianships or conservatorships
We will guide you through the legal steps of obtaining, modifying or extending guardianships and conservatorships when loved ones may be unable to participate meaningfully in decision-making concerning the person’s health and well-being.
Our attorneys strive to make required processes smooth and straightforward for family members seeking to care for loved one. We educate clients in detail and handle all court proceedings on their behalf.
