A guardian's responsibilities include all living arrangements, medical care and management of all finances, real property and personal property. At Greenberg & Lanz, we can represent you in applying to the Court to become a guardian, and then continue to provide guidance in your decisions and duties as a guardian.

A person is in need of a guardian when they have become too incapacitated to make financial, health care and legal decisions for themselves. To have a guardian appointed for a loved one, the person must be determined incapacitated by a judge. Then the Judge will decide who the best person is to be appointed as guardian. This is often a document-intensive and complex legal process, and deserves a dedicated and compassionate attorney who will get to know you and your family member in order to present the best possible case.

Often times, there are other issues that come along with becoming guardian. As your legal representative, we can help with other life planning and estate planning matters, such as:

  • Hearings to determine incapacity
  • Advising trustees and serving as trustees for an adult family member with special needs
  • Setting up power of attorney
  • Annual reporting (expenses)
  • Annual accounting (inventory of trust or guardianship assets)
  • Discharge of the guardian at the end of the case (death, age of maturity or transfer of guardianship)
  • Guardianship litigation
