Palm Beach Gardens Guardianship Attorney

Serving Families throughout South Florida

Guardianship is an important aspect of estate planning that can be difficult to understand. Though guardianship is a helpful tool, appointing a guardian is a serious decision that should be addressed with the help of a skilled attorney.

In most cases, guardianship's are established to take care of:

  • A parent who has become incapacitated
  • An adult disabled child
  • A minor who receives a personal injury settlement

A person can avoid the need for guardianship if they have estate planning documents in place such as a power of attorney and healthcare surrogate. However, these documents can only be completed in advance of a need. Once a person becomes incapacitated, he or she does not have the legal capacity to make a power of attorney or health care surrogate designation.

Our Palm Beach Gardens guardianship lawyer understands this is an emotionally difficult time for you. The Law Office of Nicole C. Morris, P.A. is here to help you with any matter related to guardianship.

We encourage you to contact us online or call (561) 220-3307 to learn more about what we can do for your family.

The Responsibilities of Guardians

Witnessing a family member's physical, mental, and emotional deterioration due to health issues such as Alzheimer's or dementia can be heartbreaking. When your loved one can no longer make sound decisions, you may need to be appointed as that person's guardian.

Becoming a guardian is an important responsibility. You are taking on the authority to make financial and personal care decisions for another person. Courts take the process of naming a guardian seriously since they taking away a person's freedom to make decisions for himself or herself.

At The Law Office of Nicole C. Morris, P.A., our attorney helps people become guardians of elderly parents, adult disabled children, and other vulnerable adults. We also draft powers of attorney, which can be an inexpensive alternative to guardianship if your loved one plans ahead. Unfortunately, in some cases, guardianship may be the only alternative.
