Guardianships

In many cases, a guardianship is required to enable a family member or other caregiver to continue managing and providing for the legal guardianship for adults with disabilities or a minor. We are experienced in the creation and administration of guardianships. In a court hearing with settlement funds, we can combine the guardianship process with a request for approval of the settlement claims, and creation of a Special Needs Trust and/or Medicare Set-Aside arrangement.

If you are considering creating a legal guardianship, it is important to consult with experienced guardianship attorneys to understand your rights and responsibilities. The process of creating the legal guardianship of a minor involves filing a petition with the court to be served to the proposed ward as well as other involved parties. A hearing follows, after which the court will decide whether to appoint the legal guardian. The same steps occur for petitions for legal guardianship for adults with disabilities. As with all complex legal matters, it is important to have someone on your side who understands the process and can help you navigate through it.
