Experienced Guidance On Guardianship Matters

A legal guardian is a person or institution tasked to make legal and financial decisions for someone who is incapacitated or who is a minor child.

Having a trusted individual or institution act as a guardian is vital to the well-being of children, those with special needs and some elderly individuals who have medical conditions such as Alzheimer's disease which prevent a full understanding of their situation and finances.

I am Dorothea Aguero, an experienced family law attorney who has helped improve my clients' family situations for over 25 years. If you need help establishing a guardian to protect the assets and financial well-being of a loved one, I can help.

Establishing A Guardianship

When establishing a guardianship, it is important that you are meticulous and timely in your legal actions. A mistake or undue delay can mean that you may not be able to become a guardian for a loved one in need. As a lawyer who has been helping clients protect their loved ones' assets for over 25 years, I know what it takes to get a legally enforceable guardianship in place in a timely fashion.

A Guardianship In Lieu Of Adoption

In some circumstances, a grandparent may wish to adopt a grandchild in need of a loving family home. While we are happy to pursue an adoption for you, in some cases where a biological parent refuses to surrender parental rights, a guardianship may be an option.

Whether to pursue an adoption, custody or guardianship is highly dependent on individual family circumstances. Please call me at 800-481-7140 or reach me online to begin planning the right legal steps for you.
