Dealing with Guardianship of the Estate
Being guardian to an entire estate means a lot more complicated legal territory to cover. We’ll be there for you through every step if you need complete financial control of a family member. You’ll still have to attend a hearing, and the person you’re caring for may be asked to attend as well if they’re able to.
Here, the bond you put up is going to be more substantial due to your control of the person’s finances. You also have to go through the legal steps of filing for an allowance that covers all the monthly expenses while you care for your family members. This even goes as far as having to publish a notice to creditors in a local newspaper to prove the person you’re guardian to has no debt.
Contact us here at Ford + Bergner LLP so we can help you through the entire guardianship application process in both of the above scenarios. We want you to have peace of mind about gaining control over a loved one’s life and finances, especially when it’s to rescue them from abuse.
