Filing for a guardianship or conservatorship is necessary in the event a loved one is unable to make his or her own personal or financial decisions and no other alternatives are available. A guardian is given legal responsibility over the care and welfare of a person that is fully or partially incapable of providing for himself or herself, whereas a conservator is given legal responsibility over a person's assets and finances.
It can be a difficult and emotional time when a loved one has become unable to care for his- or herself or affairs competently. Our firm has initiated guardianship and conservatorship proceedings in many cases and can help ensure that your loved ones are taken care of while preserving their rights and privileges to the fullest practical extent.
Mr. Smith's experience encompasses divorces involving military spouses, domestic abuse, and interstate child abduction and parental kidnapping issues, including child return matters under the International Hague Convention. In fact, his is the only law firm in the area actively handling international child abduction cases.
