Guardianships allow a party to take over the custody of the person and property of a minor child or an incapacitated adult who is found legally unable to properly manage his or her own affairs. For many guardians, this means caring for child in need or making sure that a parent is safe from fraud or abuse. On rare occasions, allegations of the inability to manage you own affairs necessitate the need to fight against unfounded accusations. Regardless of your situation, we are prepared to advocate for you or your loved one in a time of need.
For all families, especially single parents and young families, the process for appointing a guardian goes hand-in-hand with estate planning. In the event of your death as a parent, a guardian should be named in your last will and testament to protect and care for your minor child.
