Your Responsibilities As A Guardian Of The Person
If you wish to seek a guardianship of the person for a family member or loved one, there is a range of legal details that you must address. Your position as a guardian will be very important to the welfare of another individual, so we must prove to the court that you are capable, free from certain crimes and have the best interests of the ward at mind.
As a guardian of the person, you will be responsible for a number of medical and personal welfare decisions on behalf of the ward, including:
- Selection of ward's residence
- Making provisions for food and clothing
- Making decisions on medical treatment
- Making educational decisions
- Whether to allow life support
In addition to helping you secure rights as a legal guardian, our lawyers can also provide ongoing advisement to help ensure you maintain legal compliance throughout the duration of your guardianship.
