Guardianship for Incapacitated Adults

The best plan for incapacity is a thorough, current power of attorney for financial and medical purposes. But often people enter a temporary permanent incapacity without those documents naming an agent to act on their behalf. When that happens, the only option is obtain a guardianship.

Like probate, guardianship is a court-controlled process that must be approached carefully. While the process may not seem complicated, there are several documents and background checks that must be drafted properly, filed in the right order, and sent to particular people at the right time.

Many people try to handle a guardianship on their own, without the assistance of an experienced guardianship attorney. This can create delays during a crisis in which time is of the essence.
