Guardianship

 

 A   guardian is a person appointed by a court to manage the affairs of a person who is incapacitated. A guardian may be appointed to manage the financial affairs of a person at significant risk of harm because of a demonstrated inability to adequately manage property or financial   affairs. A guardian may be appointed to make health care and other non-financial decisions for a person at significant risk of harm because of a demonstrated inability to adequately provide for  nutrition, health, housing or physical safety.

  Establishing a Guardianship, whether it is for a minor child or an adult can be a very complicated process.  People Paralegal understands most people cannot afford the high cost of an attorney to resolve a matter, that in most cases, must be done to alleviate a pressing family issue.
 


Guardianship of an Adult

 

While trying to make the decision to establish guardianship of an elderly,   ill, or disabled parent or spouse can be painful and stressful, our  goal  is to do everything we can to make the actual legal process of establishing guardianship as easy as possible.

Guardianship of a Minor

 

When determining whether to represent yourself in a minor guardianship   action, you must first determine whether your case will be contested or uncontested by the child's biological parents if they are alive.  The most common type of minor guardianship occurs usually by a child's grandparents when the child's biological parents are unable to carry  out  their parental responsibilities.  We prepare Minor Guardianship documents for self-represented persons so long as at least one of the parents will consent to the guardianship.  If both parents object to  the  guardianship then you may need to proceed with an attorney.
