We have extensive experience in offering quality legal representation and assistance in establishing wills and trusts, assigning guardianship, and guidance throughout the probate process.
Guardianship of the Person
There are generally two types of guardianship that can be granted to individuals – guardianship of the person and guardianship of the property. Guardianship of the person allows for a family or court-appointed individual to take charge of an elderly person’s needs, including medical and residential decisions. Unlike guardianship of the property, guardianship of a person does not require the guardian to handle financial issues.
The following responsibilities may fall on a guardian of the elderly person:
- Where the elderly individual may be residing
- Following through with end-of-life wishes and planning
- Medical treatment
- Decisions on education
Guardianship of the Property
Establishing guardianship of the property will allow the assigned individual to make financial decisions, including:
- Paying bills on time
- Managing any income
- Overseeing appraisals and distribution of assets in a will or trust
