Guardianship

A guardian is a person who, by court appointment, has the authority to make medical, educational, financial and other major decisions for an incapacitated person.   An incapacitated person is an individual over the age of 18 who is impaired by mental illness or deficiency, physical illness or disability, developmental disability, or other cause rendering him or her unable to govern himself and manage his own affairs.  The process of having an individual declared incapacitated and a guardian appointed can be confusing and overwhelming.  The attorneys at Wolkstein, Von Ellen & Brown, LLC can help take away the guess-work by navigating you through the process step-by-step.
