Guardianship Attorney in Southlake

Helping Families throughout the Dallas Fort Worth Area

A guardian is someone who has been given the legal responsibility to take care of a child or an incapacitated individual’s needs. Often this extends to their financial assets as well. Before a guardian can be named, however, an individual will need to attend a hearing where to prove the individual needs a guardian and the proposed person is fit to serve. Because a ward loses many of his or her freedoms should guardianship be granted, the court requires you to produce significant evidence and documentation to substantiate your request for guardianship. If an individual is in immediate danger, a court may grant a temporary guardianship of up to 60 days.

Should you wish to become the guardian of a child or someone who is incapacitated due to disability, disease, or injury, Harber Law Group can help. For legal advice and committed care, call our Southlake guardianship attorney at (817) 203-2815.

What Is a Guardian Responsible for?

In general, a named guardian will be responsible for the following:

  • Housing
  • Food and clothing
  • Medical care
  • Education and related expenses
  • Finances, including government benefits and inheritances
  • The overall well-being

At Harber Law Group, we are prepared to guide you through contested and uncontested guardianship proceedings. A contested guardianship is when a ward or a family member disagrees that the guardianship is necessary. These situations can make the proceedings much more complex and drawn out. If your loved one is the victim of financial abuse, misuse of a power of attorney, neglect, or other types of elder abuse, we are prepared to quickly step in and put our resources and experience towards assisting him or her.

We can help you in securing the safety of your ward. Don’t try to wade through the nuances of guardianship law on your own. For skilled and dedicated legal representation, call Harber Law Group at (817) 203-2815.
