When it comes to family law, all cases tend to strike a chord with those involved. Guardianship cases, however, can be especially draining for everyone affected. You only want what is best for your loved ones. But with so much at stake, it can be difficult to see clearly and make decisions with an objective perspective. After all, when the care and wellbeing of another person is on the table, shortcuts are not an option.
Despite your best efforts to remain cool and collected, you may find yourself questioning your ability to handle the stress on your own. Rest assured that you are not alone in this, as many people struggle with the process of awarding or receiving guardianship of another person. So when tensions rise and emotions cloud your perception, an experienced Hamilton County guardianship attorney can help you navigate the process.
Guardianship is generally awarded in one of three situations. The most frequent reasons for the bestowal of guardianship are in cases that involve a minor, an incapacitated senior, or a developmentally disabled adult.
Each of these cases can and should be handled with care, as the outcomes impact both those seeking to become guardians and those who will be affected by the guardianship verdict. Ultimately, all three stem from a basic acknowledgement that the senior, minor or adult in need of a guardian can no longer, or has never been able to, properly care for themselves. Regardless of the reason for entering into guardianship discussions, guardianship attorney Hains can assist you with the legal process.
