When Is it Time to Hire a Lawyer for Guardianship

Guardianship can be an important and necessary step in ensuring that your loved one is taken care of. But how do you know when it's time to hire a lawyer for the guardianship process? Let’s take a look at the key indicators that might indicate a need for legal assistance.

When Someone is Unable to Make Decisions on Their Own

If you are considering establishing guardianship, it may be because your loved one lacks the mental capacity to make decisions on their own. This could be due to age, illness, or disability. In these cases, hiring an attorney can help ensure that all the proper paperwork is completed and filed correctly. An experienced lawyer will also be able to work with other professionals—like doctors, social workers, and therapists—to ensure that your loved one's needs are being met appropriately.

When Someone Has Financial Assets

When someone has financial assets—such as investments, property, or business interests—it's important to protect them from potential misuse or fraud. A lawyer can help ensure that all of your loved one's financial assets are managed correctly and in accordance with their wishes. They will also be able to provide advice on setting up trusts, creating wills, and other financial matters.

When You Need Help Navigating Complex Regulations

Establishing guardianship requires navigating complex regulations at both the state and federal levels. An attorney can help you understand these regulations and guide you through the process of establishing legal guardianship over your loved one. They can also handle any disputes or disagreements between family members so that everyone gets what they need without unnecessary conflict.
