Northwest Indiana, Adult Guardianship Attorney
There are times when we realize that we must take necessary steps to take care of our loved ones when they are no longer able to care for themselves due to a physical or mental incapacity. At Stephens Law Firm, P.C., in St. John, Indiana, I have extensive experience working with families on adult guardianship matters.
Compassionate Indiana Adult Guardianship Lawyer
Under appropriate circumstances, the Court may appoint a Guardian to act on behalf of the person in need of protection. In most circumstances, the individual's treating physician must first certify and attest to the nature of the incapacity. Once the Court is assured that the need for the guardianship exists, the Court, after due notice to the incapacitated person and his or her closest living relatives, will appoint a Guardian.
The guardianship will continue until the protected person is deceased at which time we can assist you in handling estate administration and probate matters.
