Mason Guardianship Lawyer | Handling Difficult Situations With Care And Compassion

We All Need A Champion

It's never easy to watch a loved one's physical or mental health deteriorate. Disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, dementia, severe mental illness and brain damage can gradually turn your loved one into someone you hardly recognize. Legal intervention may become necessary to protect his or her well-being.

Understanding Your Legal Options For Helping Your Loved One

Adult guardianships and conservatorships protect those who are unable to adequately care for themselves (in legal terms, incapacitated).

  • A court-appointed guardian will have responsibility for the incapacitated adult's physical well-being and major life decisions.
  • A conservator will have legal authority to manage his or her financial affairs and property.

Unless your loved one established the right estate planning documents, you will likely have to pursue guardianship and conservatorship in court. The court will look closely at your loved one's circumstances to determine whether he or she is legally incapacitated.
