If you care for another person, you may be afraid of what will happen to them if something happened to you. Every caretaker should have a chosen person, or guardian, who can make decisions for your loved one if you are unable to do so yourself. A guardianship allows you to legally designate this guardian so that there is no question about who you would want to care for your family member who cannot care for themselves.
At The Law Office of Jeffrey M. Janeiro, P.L., we help people in Florida and across the country navigate the process of creating a guardianship. Our estate planning lawyers will advise you on who is a suitable candidate for a guardianship and ensure that your loved one is protected should anything happen to you. You can schedule your free consultation at our Naples law firm by calling 239-513-2324.
Guardians have many powers for the person they care for, including the ability to:
- Determine where they will live
- Manage their finances
- Make health care decisions
- Control their assets and property
- Handle any legal issues that may arise
Who Can Benefit From A Guardianship?
Anyone that cares for another person can be helped by a guardianship, including people who care for:
- Underage children
- People with physical and mental disabilities
- Elderly parents or loved ones
- A person that is ill or incapacitated
Without a guardianship, the state will become involved in the process of finding a guardian for your loved one. By choosing a guardian yourself, you can ensure that your loved one will receive the high quality of care that you would have provided.
