When Is A Guardianship Needed?

The court appoints a guardian to assume legal responsibility for another individual and their property. Guardianship is sometimes necessary when a person is unable to make determinations regarding their finances or medical care due to certain circumstances.

There is no doubt that this can be a difficult process for everyone involved. Attorneys Margaret Oliver and Lauren Leffler 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.
