Guardianship

The court appoints a guardian to manage the personal and financial matters of a person who is unable to manage on his own, either temporarily or permanently. Anyone can petition the court to be appointed as a guardian, but normally a relative or a facility representative is appointed.

Do you have a close friend or family member who is in need of a legal guardian? We have the knowledge and experience you need to help you become a legal guardian for a minor or a person who is incapacitated. Being a legal guardian comes with a lot of responsibilities including:


  • Making sure the individual has proper medical care
  • Taking care of his or her financial needs
  • Enrolling a child in school
  • Filing the inventory and accountings
  • Making sure that a care-giver is available, if needed
  • Filing the individualís taxes

If you are seeking the guardianship of an adult or a minor, we can help you meet your goals in a timely manner.
