Guardianship For Elders And Those With Disabilities

A guardianship grants the legal right to make financial and/or health decisions for another individual. People often think of guardians as those who are responsible for children and young adults. In fact, a guardianship can be a useful tool for those who are aging or for adult children who have a disability.

The Law Offices of Valerie A. Shivers can review your family's situation and your desired outcome and determine whether guardianship may be appropriate. If so, you must obtain approval from the proper court to appoint a guardian. Our attorneys handle the preparation, filing and follow-through of such petition.

You will appreciate our willingness to help, easy-to-understand explanations of the laws in New York and the family-like atmosphere of our firm.

Why Guardianship?

Every individual and family situation is unique. In some cases, a guardianship may make sense. A guardianship can pass the authority to another person for all or some of the following reasons:

  • Medicaid planning
  • Financial matters, such as paying bills
  • Asset protection
