When a child is under the age of 18 or an adult is considered unable to care for their own best interests, the court may establish a legal guardian to represent them.
Do I need a lawyer to establish guardianship?
Some people file to become a legal guardian without the help of an attorney. However, keep in mind that the clerks providing your paperwork are unable to give legal advice or further assistance. This can sometimes make the process complicated and time-consuming.
An experienced guardianship attorney can make the process much smoother, particularly if the guardianship case is contested. But contested or otherwise, an attorney at Worden & Carbitcher allows you a safe place to ask questions, hear your options, and file for guardianship with a powerful advocate on your side.
