What is Guardianship?

Sometimes individuals become ‘incapacitated’ without signing powers of attorney. In this event, some friend or family member must volunteer to become the individual’s Guardian for both health care and financial decisions, because the individual can no longer make those decisions for him/herself. To obtain approval for a Guardianship, numerous issues must be determined by a Circuit Court Judge in a formal hearing. If your loved one did not complete Power of Attorney documents, we are happy to assist you in preparing and filing the proper documents, and representing you in court to seek approval of the guardianship. This process can be avoided however, through proper use of Powers of Attorney.
