Guardianship is a legal proceeding in which a guardian is appointed by the Court that then exercises the legal rights for another individual called a Ward. A guardian may be appointed by the courts when an individual has been declared incapacitated because of age, illness, or injury. A court may also appoint a guardian for an individual who seems likely to be cheated or taken advantage of by others due to illness, incapacity, or age. If you feel one of your loved ones is incapacitated or someone you know is incapacitated, my firm has the expertise and knowledge to assist you in establishing a guardianship. The Court will appoint a committee to evaluate the individual and they will make findings and recommendations to the Court as to their incapacity or capacity to handle different tasks. The Court can issue a plenary guardianship which is a full guardianship over the person and/or property of the ward or the Court may issue a limited guardianship which is where the guardian is responsible for specific areas of care but not all. All decisions regarding the Ward will be determined by the Guardian as then approved by the Court including personal decisions and financial decisions, depending on the type of Guardianship approved by the Court.
