Protecting the vulnerable
As a family member ages, succumbs to illness, or is simply too young to make major life decisions, one of the safest measures to take is to establish a guardianship. A guardianship is a protective measure in which a guardian, usually a close family member or guardian ad litem, assumes responsibility over a ward’s assets and general well-being.
Helping to establish different kinds of guardianships, including those for minors, property, and incapacitated adults.
The guardian’s role
The guardian takes responsibility for the ward in many capacities, including managing finances, deciding where the ward will live, choosing medical care options, and making legal decisions. Guardians must provide annual reports to the court throughout the duration of the guardianship.
Guardianships for minors enable an adult to protect the minor’s interests, usually in the case of inheriting a large sum of money. These arrangements are also known as guardianships of property.
