Legally Protecting Families in Merion Station

Guardianship is granted through a variety of ways, including court-appointed guardianship, or legally-assigned guardianship. If the caregiver of a minor child or handicapped adult is no longer able to care for them, a new guardian, or conservator, must be named. If a caregiver has assigned a conservator via a will or trust, the courts will legally recognize that individual as the rightful guardian of the individual. Without establishing a guardian, however, the courts may be forced to appoint one on their own.

There are many benefits to appointing a guardian to a protected individual, or ward, including:

  • You being able to determine who you see fit to watch over the protected person
  • Ensuring that medical care and your educational preferences are granted to the ward
  • Determining where the individual may live
  • End-of-life decisions
  • Maintaining property and assets
  • Management of income, assets, and payments

Guardianship can be of a person, property, or a minor, and legal guardianship is generally granted to a family member, relative, or other trusted individual that is willing to care for the ward.
