With our aging population, the attorneys at Ikard Law PC frequently advise clients on the need—and the intricacies of—guardianships.
We assist our clients in carefully evaluating the need for a guardianship. This involves considering less restrictive alternatives that, in many situation, can avoid the need for a guardianship.
If, after considering all options and alternatives, a guardianship is deemed necessary, we represent our clients in establishing the proposed ward’s incapacity and seeing the appointment of a guardian.
Courts are protective of wards’ rights, so the rules governing a guardian’s conduct are very detailed. When a client becomes a guardian, we provide advice and representation to ensure that the client-guardian complies with these rules while protecting the ward and his or her property.
