What happens there depends on the strength of your petition. Our team can be the make-or-break difference for success in ensuring guardianship petition succeeds.

Why Guardianship?

The goal of a guardianship is to help those who cannot help themselves. With that being said, people who are most likely to receive a guardianship are:

  • Elderly people who are no longer able to care for themselves
  • Disabled adults who do not have legal competency
  • Minor children who are unable to be cared for by their parents
