At Adams Law Office, LLC, taking care of families is what we do best. Guardianship can sometimes be necessary when a loved one has not prepared the right estate plan in advance of losing capacity to handle their own affairs. This can happen over time due to deteriorating medical conditions like Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, mental disability, or even drug or alcohol addiction.
This can also happen suddenly due to debilitating conditions like a stroke, auto accident, or other physical trauma. No matter the cause, having a loved one who is dependent on you to provide their care and manage their finances, can be overwhelming. If you don’t have a Power of Attorney or Advance Healthcare Directive in place, banks, doctors and facilities can make it even more difficult for you to care for your loved one. That’s when we can step in to help you get the legal documents in place to officially manage their affairs.
