When a loved one becomes incapacitated and has not previously made arrangements for someone to handle their affairs, the Court can appoint a guardian on that person’s behalf. That guardian will then have legal authority to make appropriate decisions for that loved one. Having a guardian ensures that the incapacitated person does not become a victim to unscrupulous individuals.
The appointment of a guardian requires a number of legal steps which our firm can guide you through. After the appointment, we will continue to help and assist you in all aspects of subsequent required annual reporting to the Court.
