Make The Right Decisions About Guardianship

A guardianship allows for a court-appointed adult to manage the affairs of another individual. With guardianship, you are allowing one individual to make decisions for someone else. There is a need for great care when creating guardianships, given the authority they grant an individual.

We will prepare a power of attorney document that meets your circumstances. Attorney David Rouse has been assisting North Carolina residents regarding such matters for more than 50 years.

Creating A Legal Guardianship

A guardianship is ideal in circumstances when an individual is unable to take care of their own affairs. It can help protect the individual’s finances and belongings from loss or theft. It provides reassurance for family members concerning the needs of the loved one.

Our lawyer has extensive experience helping individuals and families create guardianships. They protect minor children, incapacitated adults and children who do not have parents. We also provide advice and guidance to guardians regarding the management of the estate and filings of accountings. Our lawyer can also assist in resolving guardianship disputes.

A guardianship is a complex legal instrument that requires court proceedings. In some situations, it may be far less stressful and expensive to use a power of attorney instrument to provide for some individuals.

To employ a power of attorney, the individual needs to agree to the creation of the grant of authority in the power of attorney. This is why planning in advance before an individual becomes legally incapacitated can be far more cost-effective. Our attorney can explain when this is appropriate and whether it could work in your specific circumstances.
