Guardianships

Reading & Pottstown Estate Planning Attorney

Who will be there to ensure that your wishes, financial affairs, and estate are taken care of after you are no longer able to do so yourself? It can be nerve-racking to consider that, without designating a guardian, your future and your family's future may be left in the hands of a state official. At Dolan Law Office, LLC, we offer trusted representation and counsel to individuals looking to establish guardianship for themselves or minor children. Creating a legally sound guardianship can ensure that your needs, affairs, and your beneficiaries' needs are taken care of in the event that you suddenly pass or become incapacitated.

When you work with our firm, we can help determine which type of guardianship will work best for you and we can develop a personalized strategy that will help you prepare for the unexpected and achieve the best possible resolution for your situation.

Depending on the specifics of your circumstances, one of the following may be right for you:

  • Guardianship of the Person -You can establish this guardianship for children under the age of 18 or guardianship for disabled adults, depending on the situation at hand. Anyone who has been named guardian could potentially be responsible for the financial concerns and medical care of the ward. To learn more about this specific situation, you need to contact Dolan Law Office, LLC right away.
  • Guardianship of the Estate - In the event that an individual is no longer able to make decisions regarding his or her estate due to incapacitation or death, the guardian of the estate can step in to make necessary decisions. It is important that you establish a guardian of an estate prior to being incapacitated; otherwise, you may risk having your estate fall into probate.
  • Limited Guardianship - This particular type of guardianship can be issued in the event that an individual cannot make decisions for him or herself but can still make limited choices regarding his or her life. Limited guardianship responsibilities depend on the person's situation and needs; they could extend from medical care to estate guardianship or legal guardianship of a minor child. The court will help determine what the roles of the guardian may be.
