It can be difficult to watch someone you love struggle. It’s natural to want to put protections in place that help that person. If you are looking for a way to help someone you love, you should know that Texas law provides for guardianships.
A guardianship is a legal tool for protecting a minor or an incapacitated person. When a guardianship is put in place, the court appoints a guardian who fulfills certain duties. Depending on the situation, guardians may be required to do many things related to caring for the person or his or her estate.
At the Jim Ross Law Group, P.C., in Arlington, we provide straightforward and complete advice regarding guardianships in Texas. We file applications for guardianships, taking actions that protect the best interests of vulnerable adults.
Many people may benefit from guardianships, including:
- Minors whose parents are not protecting their best interests
- Those incapacitated by serious health problems
- Those with advanced alcoholism or drug addiction
- Those with mental illness
- Those with Alzheimer’s or other chronic conditions related to memory loss
Each case is different. Depending on the situation, our Arlington guardianship attorneys represent people who are seeking to have a guardianship put in place and people who are fighting (called “contesting”) the guardianship.
