A guardian is a person who is appointed by the court to be legally responsible for another person or someone else's property, or both.
Guardianship gives the responsible party the right to make decisions regarding the health, welfare, finances, living situation and other areas of concern for the child or disabled adult. If you or someone you care about needs representation for a guardianship matter, your interests will be best served by talking to a Glen Burnie family law attorney about the details of your particular situation. You will need a legal representative who knows the laws and procedures that pertain to the responsibility of guardianship so you are fully educated on how it affects everyone involved.
Unlike larger firms, my practice is a smaller and my main focuses are family law and divorce. I can help you with the legal documents and court proceedings that will be needed for a positive outcome in your guardianship case. I can work with the family members involved to make sure that everyone understands their legal rights as the person being cared for, as well as the one being appointed legal guardian.
The process generally takes 6 - 18 months to complete. You will be kept informed of all of the steps that must be done, so you know what to expect, and all forward progress that is made. If you need assistance with any guardianship issue, I am prepared to provide you with the highest level of representation.
