GUARDIANSHIP is the process by which a person or entity is appointed by the court to administer the personal and/or financial affairs of a person who is legally adjudicated to be partially or totally incapacitated. There are various forms of guardianship including involuntary guardianship, voluntary guardianship or guardianship of a minor.
Guardianship should be pursued as a last resort and need for a guardianship can be avoided with the proper planning that may include power of attorney, designation of health care surrogate and a revocable trust.
If you have a guardianship or incapacity matter that you would like to discuss, please contact me for a consultation.
