Attorney Morris Klein can help with guardianship issues, including:
- Advising on merits of guardianship
- Representation in guardianship proceedings
A person who is incapable of managing his or her affairs may require court intervention through a “guardianship” to protect the person’s welfare and assets. Guardianship proceedings may arise if a person has not signed a power of attorney document for financial or for health care, if family members disagree about the person’s care needs, or if the person is being exploited.
A guardianship is a legal proceeding wherein the petitioner sues the person who is the subject of the guardianship alleging that the person is incapacitated and cannot manage his or her affairs
There are two types of guardians. One is a guardian of the person, who is responsible for making decisions concerning the person’s health and welfare. The other is a guardian of the property (called a conservator in D.C.) who is responsible for managing the person’s finances. Often the guardian of the property must be bonded to ensure the funds are protected.
