If you need to file for adult guardianship, our team has the right experience to guide you through every step of the process.
When people hear the term “guardianship”, most tend to think of children and their caregivers, but there are certain situations in which adults may need guardianship too. For adults who have special needs or are unable to make their own decisions, the court may appoint another individual–usually a family member–to act as a guardian and make decisions on their behalf. The process of securing adult guardianship can be complicated, but fortunately our team at the office of Robert G. Spaugh, Attorney at Law, is here to guide you through every step.
In cases of guardianship, including adult guardianship, the guardian is the person who is appointed to make decisions on behalf of the protected person. If you need to file for guardianship over an adult in your life, you will need to file the right legal paperwork, as well as demonstrate to the court that you are invested in the protected person’s best interests and are able to do what’s best for them. As with most legal proceedings, this process can be rather complicated and involved, so it’s always best to have an experienced team to help you get everything in order. Our team has worked extensively in this area of the law, and you can count on us to help you secure guardianship so that you can continue to protect and care for your loved one.
