What Is Legal Guardianship?
There are a few different ways legal guardianship can be implemented and, depending on your specific needs, an attorney can help draft appropriate guardianship paperwork. Guardianships can be appointed in a will, can be drafted because of a medical concern, or can come into place because of an extraordinary event.
When determining who should be a legal guardian, there are some things that should be taken into consideration, including:
- The age of the individual that is being appointed as the guardian
- The age of the individual that needs guardianship
- The appointee understands the best interests of the individual
- If it is a temporary or permanent guardianship
- How the guardianship will affect the individual
