If you need to file for guardianship, our team has the right experience to guide you through every step of the process.
When someone is unable to make their own decisions or care for themselves, the court may appoint a guardian to provide that care and make those decisions on their behalf. This is called guardianship, and it can be applied to a number of different scenarios. For example, if a child’s parents are unable to care for them, or if an adult no longer has the capacity to make decisions for themselves, a guardian is often necessary. If you are looking for help with matters of guardianship, you can turn to our team at the office of Robert G. Spaugh, Attorney at Law to get the expert advice you need.
In legal terms, a guardian is a person appointed to make decisions for another person, and the person who is receiving that guardianship is known as the protected person. As we mentioned, a protected person can be a child or an adult, but in all cases, the court is invested in protecting their welfare. If you need to file for guardianship, you’ll need the help of an experienced attorney to help you get all the paperwork in order, as well as help show the court that you are able to act in the protected person’s best interests. Fortunately, our team is here to provide the expert assistance you need.
