Guardianship

 

Sometimes it is necessary for a court to appoint a guardian for a person who can no longer make important decisions for themselves.  The individual may have failed to sign financial and medical powers of attorney while competent.  The decision makers they named may have died, or are unwilling to act. Or your loved one is a disabled minor child about to reach age 18 who needs continuing assistance with personal, medical and financial matters.
