Whether for a minor child or an incapacitated individual, a guardian has certain legal duties and responsibilities to manage and monitor a ward’s assets, health, and well-being. When a person is unable to control the financial and personal matters of his or her life, it may be necessary to establish a guardianship for his or her protection.

            The court appoints guardians to protect and assist incapacitated persons.  The type of guardian the judge appoints will depend on the facts and circumstances.  How facts are presented can make the difference between success and failure.  Proceeding without experienced advise can increase cost and effort, which is why it is vital to have the assistance of an experienced Guardianship lawyer.
