Is Guardianship the Right Solution?

Guardianship can prove to be valuable in a number of situations. More importantly, guardianship can help stabilize you, your family, and the person (or people) for whom you are caring.

Common reasons clients seek guardianship include:

  • Caring for a Minor Child: If you care for a minor child who is not your own, you will need to file for legal guardianship in order to make important decisions about their healthcare and schooling. If you will be caring for the minor child for the foreseeable future, you should talk to our attorneys about establishing guardianship.
  • Caring for a Family Member with a Physical or Mental Illness: Although you can administer medications and take an ill family member to doctor appointments, you won’t be able to make medical decisions for them without a legal guardianship.
  • Caring for a Senior Family Member: As some members of your family age, it might become too difficult for them to manage their everyday needs on their own. By becoming a legal guardian, you can assist them with their finances, insurance, medications, and more.
