Assisting With All Aspects Of Guardianship Matters

Arizona is one of the most popular destinations for retirees and people looking to escape the winter. Often, their loved ones will come and visit, and during these visits, they may notice signs that their parents are having difficulty taking care of themselves.

It is often necessary for the family to have someone appointed as a guardian for their loved one. The guardian will be able to make healthcare and living decisions going forward for the incapacitated adult. At McDonald Warner in Phoenix, we have helped many families with either side of guardianship requests, as well as all other issues connected to estate planning or probate.

Working Together To Find The Right Choice For You

It is often hard for people to admit that they need help, and if you see your loved one struggling, you might not know what to do to make sure he or she receives needed care going forward. Also, you and other family members may have different opinions regarding whether a guardianship is necessary.

Because of the emotions involved in these cases, it is a good idea to have an experienced attorney on your side to help walk you through the process, especially if you are located out of state. We handle many guardianship matters, so we have an in-depth understanding and awareness of the issues and concerns in these situations. We know how to build an effective strategy no matter which side of the case we are on.

We do our best to try to reduce conflict in these situations, but that is not always possible. There may be issues that the courts must decide upon before a guardianship is approved or denied. We appear frequently at hearings that involve guardianships, and we know what facts help establish or refute a request. We are confident that we will be able to work together with you to determine the right options for the future of your family.
