Guardianship

Guardianship is a court-established relationship in which one person (the guardian) oversees another (the ward). Guardianships may be established for minors or for incapacitated adults.  Guardianships may be partial or complete; over the estate, over the person, or over the estate and the person.  Guardianships are considered a “last resort” with regard to aiding another with their affairs.  Less-restrictive means are always considered in conjunction with the guardianship hearing.   In the event a guardianship is necessary, we can help you navigate through the application and guardianship process, ensuring you, as the guardian, are fulfilling your fiduciary duties with regard to both the ward and the court.
