Guardianship is a court-established relationship between two parties: a “ward” and a “guardian.” A “ward” is an individual who is experiencing some type of incapacity which requires the appointment of a trusted individual to make decisions on the ward’s behalf, known as a “guardian.” The term “incapacity” is defined in the Texas Estates Code, but it can range anywhere from a minor who has inherited money or other assets from an estate (usually an intestate situation), or a child who turned 18 who suffers from a severe cause of autism or intellectual disability who still needs a parent to make decisions for them, to an elderly parent experiencing dementia or Alzheimer’s.
When a loved one is experiencing an incapacity, a guardianship may be necessary. Our team of attorneys at Rosenblatt have experience in helping clients through all different types of guardianship, including both minor and adult guardianships, temporary and permanent guardianships, and guardianships of the person and/or estate.
While guardianships may be necessary in some cases, it is important to note that courts consider this the most restrictive legal relationship it can establish over someone, and less-restrictive alternates should always be considered before a guardianship is created. Our team of attorneys also has experience in defending clients from unwanted guardianship cases. No matter what the situation, our team is here to help you through your guardianship needs.
