What Is A Guardianship?
A guardianship fulfills many of the duties typically outlined by a power of attorney. Unfortunately, when a loved one without a power of attorney in place becomes sick, disabled or otherwise incapacitated, a power of attorney is no longer an option. That’s where guardianship comes into play. Also known as conservatorship, a guardianship grants the right to make decisions about a person’s well-being and property to another individual – most often a family member such as a parent or adult child.
The decision-making power granted to a guardian can include decisions regarding:
- Medical treatment
- End-of-life decisions
- Purchase or sale of property
- Signing contracts
Due to the gravity of these issues, the court will go to great lengths to ensure that appointing a guardian is in your loved one’s best interest. Our experienced family attorneys can help you move through this complex process as efficiently as possible, filing legal documents and counseling you on your rights and responsibilities, so you can focus on being there for your loved one.
