Protecting Against Guardianship

Any interested person can seek to place you under a guardian’s control. A judge makes guardianship appointments by declaring a person incapacitated during living probate proceedings. The judge grants another person control over all aspects of your physical and financial existence.

A person with a guardian cannot manage their own assets, health care or living arrangements. Guardianship and living probate can be avoided with comprehensive estate planning.
