The guardianship process empowers you to make decisions on behalf of an incapacitated person or minor. It is useful when you care for a disabled family member or provide food, shelter, medical care, and education to another individual’s child.
While guardianship is frequently necessary, the process also demands sensitivity. Previously independent people who now face limited functioning may be reluctant to take this help and parents who currently cannot meet a child’s needs often feel shame that you need to fulfil those roles for them. The Law Office of Keith P. Allen, LLC understands these issues as well as the legal theories of guardianship. Even if the guardianship is contested, we look out for the best interests of all involved while also preserving their dignity.
