What Is Guardianship?

Guardianship is a legal process that grants an individual or entity the legal authority to make decisions on behalf of someone who is unable to make decisions for themselves. This often applies to minors, individuals with disabilities, or elderly individuals who are no longer capable of managing their personal and financial affairs independently. The appointed guardian becomes responsible for ensuring the well-being, safety, and care of the person under their guardianship.

Different Guardianship Arrangements Explained

Guardianship for Minors: When parents are unable to care for their child due to incapacity, incarceration, or other circumstances, a guardianship can be established to ensure the child's needs are met. The appointed guardian assumes legal responsibility for the minor's well-being, including providing a stable home, education, healthcare, and making important decisions regarding their upbringing.

Adult Guardianship: In situations where an adult is deemed mentally or physically incapable of managing their personal and financial affairs, guardianship can be established to protect their interests. The appointed guardian assumes responsibility for making decisions related to healthcare, housing, finances, and overall welfare, ensuring the adult receives the necessary care and support.

Guardianship of Person and Estate: In some cases, separate individuals may be appointed as guardians of the person and guardians of the estate. The guardian of the person is responsible for the individual's personal care, while the guardian of the estate manages their financial affairs, including managing assets, paying bills, and making investment decisions.

Guardian Appointment Process in the Bronx

There are several reasons a guardian may be appointed:

  • When an adult lacks the capacity to make decisions for themselves.
  • If an adult is in need of protective services, such as medical care or housing.
  • Due to the person's inability to handle their financial affairs.

If you are concerned about an elderly relative or a loved one who may need a guardian, it is important to speak with an experienced guardianship attorney as soon as possible. We can help you understand your options and rights.

    "Great attorneys who listen and care"
    My case was a bit complicated but, I thank God that I was able to find the right law firm to represent me and help me get through such a difficult time. Everything turned out even better than expected. The prices are also great and reasonable.
    "Done efficiently and in a thorough manner."
    Unfortunately, divorce is all too common these days. Thank God mine was uncontested and fairly simple. The entire process took 4 months.. I never had to go to court, and only had to visit the office twice. Done efficiently and in a thorough manner.

    I'm not fond of attorneys but this guy is great. He'll answer your question(s) and there's no pressure of signing any contact. He'll tell you what the family court law is and he will fight for the best interest. This attorney is amazing. I will keep his name and telephone number on my iPhone and will recommend him to everyone that I know who would need his services. Don't think twice, this is the man.

    "They do what they say they are going to do and they will fight for your best interest. Please trust their judgment as it is a difficult process for everyone."
    I have went through a very difficult process. I went through two attorneys before meeting the Wayne Crowe Jr staff. I am so appreciative that I had the opportunity to have their staff work for me. I wish that I would have went to them first. Their staff Wayne, Caroline, Lee, Brian and Scott were all hands on and wonderful people. They not only cleaned up the mess the previous attorneys made. They were diligent, understanding and compassionate. I had the pleasure of having Caroline represent me and she is amazing.
