Whether an individual has a petition filed against them, an individual is filing a petition against someone else, or they are appointed as a guardian for another individual, our attorneys make the legal process easier by assisting with necessary paperwork, filings, court hearings, and more.
If an individual requires a court-appointed guardian, they can be a:
- General guardian
- Guardian of the person
- Guardian of the estate
A general guardian is one who is responsible for the incompetent person in addition to their estate. In some cases the court will appoint one guardian of the person and a separate guardian of the estate.
When there are multiple guardians, the guardian of the person will handle all decisions related to the custody, care, and the control of the ward, and the guardian of the estate will handle only the ward’s property, business endeavors, and finances.
