Representation in Guardianship Matters in Indianapolis
Driven family law lawyers. Experienced litigators.
At Keffer Barnhart LLP, our Indianapolis family law attorneys are skilled
in handling matters related to guardianship. A guardian is an individual
who is appointed as the responsible party either for an individual who
has been deemed incapacitated, or a minor child. The guardian is often
responsible for major decisions regarding the individual or child, such
as finances and healthcare. Guardians are often listed in wills and trusts,
but matters can become contentious if there were no legal documents stating
the party or position.
There are multiple types of guardians, including but not limited to:
- Limited guardian – This is an individual who doesn’t have full
or permanent decision-making abilities or care over a minor.
- Healthcare representative – If for any reason an individual is unable
to make decisions regarding their own healthcare, this representative
is given the power.
- Co-guardian – It is entirely possible for more than one person to
be appointed as a guardian for an individual or minor. These individuals
will share the decision-making abilities.
Legal Issues Related to Guardianship
In the event there is an individual who doesn’t have a will or trust
– or any other legally binding document – naming a guardian,
matters can become troublesome. A court may appoint a guardian for the
individual or child, but others may feel that this isn’t the best
choice. If you are involved in a guardianship dispute, it is important
to retain legal representation as soon as possible.
