Guardianship Services For Families
Mark R. Iverson offers assistance to families in the area of guardianship. A guardianship action is filed for a number of reasons. Guardianship is normally filed on behalf of an alleged incapacitated adult. A family member or other suitable individual becomes the guardian and is able to make personal and financial decisions on behalf of the incapacitated adult. If a family member or other suitable individual is not available, a professional guardian is appointed.
There are also situations where it is necessary to establish a guardianship on behalf of a minor. For instance, if a minor moves to the home of another family member or friends, it will be necessary to establish a guardianship so that personal, medical and education decisions can be made by the guardian. It is also necessary for a family to file a guardianship if a minor child is about to become an adult (18 years old) and is unable to live independently and is unable to make personal and financial decisions.
