Help Establishing Guardianship For A Loved One
When Should You Set Up A Guardianship?
Guardianships allow you to make personal decisions on behalf of a loved one who is unable to make those decisions for themselves. These personal decisions can include anything from living arrangements to medical decisions. They are most often set up for children, the elderly or those with special needs.
When your loved one is unable to make their own independent legal or personal decisions, you may want to consider designating a trusted individual as their guardian. Establishing a guardianship can be a difficult process, legally and emotionally. Many adult guardianships involve children taking care of their parents in their declining health. Marilyn Belew has experience setting up these guardianships and can act as your ally throughout the process.
