When an individual without an appropriate estate plan is unable to attend to their daily care or financial decisions, a guardianship may be necessary. A guardianship is a court-ordered legal relationship in which a person is appointed to oversee and manage the personal, medical and financial needs of an incapacitated person. Often, the guardian is a spouse or child of the individual. We also represent individuals who object to the establishment or continuation of a guardianship. Guardianship proceedings can be complicated and are designed to protect the rights of the impaired person.
Our dedicated attorneys provide excellent legal counsel and assistance to family members seeking to assist loved ones who are facing incapacity. Whether it be an uncontested or contested guardianship proceeding, the experienced attorneys at Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig can assist you.
