When Is A Guardianship Needed?

A guardian is a person appointed by the court to assume legal responsibility for another person and/or another person’s property. Guardianship is sometimes necessary when a person is unable to make responsible decisions concerning his or her medical care and financial situation because of age, mental illness or disability.

There is no doubt that this can be a difficult process for everyone involved. Margaret Oliver can help you through the designation process, ensuring that you fulfill your duties correctly.

In many cases, a family member or friend will seek to be awarded guardianship. In other instances, an attorney could be appointed guardian. In some situations, a guardian is appointed for a child if the parents die, become incapacitated or cannot care for the child.
