What is a guardian?
When a person cannot care for his or her personal or financial well-being, the court may order a guardian to look after him or her. Known as a ward, the person being cared for need not be a child. In cases where an elderly person suffers from incapacitating diseases like dementia, a guardian may be appointed.
The Boyce Holleman law firm proudly provides comprehensive support on all aspects of family law, including divorce, child custody, spousal support, property division and adoptions. Additionally, we can assist you with your guardianship case in the following ways:
- Determine the type of guardianship: When you seek our assistance, our first goal in representing you is to determine the type of guardianship you need. Depending on your circumstances, you may need a guardianship for a minor, an emergency guardianship, temporary guardianship or limited guardianship.
- Ensure forms are filled out correctly: Being appointed as a guardian requires that you obtain and fill out the necessary legal paperwork. Our knowledgeable lawyers in Gulfport can review your guardianship application and ensure that it is filed correctly.
- Represent you at your guardianship hearing: After filing for a guardianship, you must attend a hearing. Our attorneys can stand by your side and explain to the judge your reasons for wanting to be appointed as a guardian.
At our firm, we understand how important your case is to you and your family. That is why our lawyers always place your needs and interests above all else.
