A Guardianship matter is where an individual(s) petitions the Court to have a Guardian appointed for a loved one or even a third party. The alleged incapacitated person will lack capacity or the ability to handle his/her own financial and/or healthcare needs. Taking on the role of becoming a guardian is a big commitment and responsibility. Every family situation is different and therefore requires a detailed consultation with one of our attorneys to ensure an optimal result.
