Adult Guardianship & Trusteeship
At Vest Estate Law, we understand that sometimes a loved one may require the protection and benefits of guardianship or trusteeship. We can help guide you through this process and ensure that your loved one’s best interests are protected.
Guardianship involves the appointment of a person to make personal and healthcare decisions for someone who is unable to do so themselves. This may be necessary in situations where an individual has a disability, illness, or injury that impairs their decision-making abilities.
Trusteeship, on the other hand, involves the appointment of a person or organization to manage the financial affairs of someone who is unable to do so themselves. This may be necessary in situations where an individual has a disability, illness, or injury that impairs their ability to manage their finances.
Our team is experienced in navigating the legal complexities of adult guardianship and trusteeship, and we will work with you to ensure that the process is as smooth and stress-free as possible. We take the time to fully understand your loved one’s needs and circumstances, and we will provide clear and concise explanations of the legal implications of guardianship and trusteeship.
