Guardianship Rights And Options
A guardianship is a legal instrument intended to protect people who are unable to make decisions on their own, whether through age, incapacity or disability. There can be guardianships of the person, in which the guardian handles the personal affairs of the ward, and guardianships of the estate, in which the guardian handles the financial affairs for the ward.
There are guardianships available for adults and minors. Adult guardianships are common for elderly or those with special needs, put into effect when an adult does not possess the ability to make or communicate decisions on his own or her own. Since minors are not old enough to make legally binding decisions on their own, it is common for people to create guardianships for their minor children as part of their comprehensive estate plans.
There are many options and considerations when establishing a guardianship. The experienced attorneys from our firm can help you understand your rights and make smart decisions in your case. Talk to an experienced attorney from our firm today.
