Guardianship is a term which describes the situation when a court appoints someone to manage the personal or financial affairs of another who, for reasons of illness, injury or incapacity, cannot properly manage their affairs by themselves.
The process of obtaining a Guardianship over another can be, and often is, a stressful, expensive and time consuming process. Proper planning can minimize or even eliminate the need of a Guardianship. However, if a Guardianship cannot be avoided, it is important to have the assistance of a competent and experienced attorney to make the process go as smoothly as possible. The attorneys at Bryan A Lowe and Associates have the combined experience of 50+ years in assisting clients who find themselves in the position of needing a Guardianship over a parent or other family member who needs assistance because of illness, injury or advanced age.
