Hackensack Guardianship Proceedings Lawyer

There are times when the people we love need someone there to look after them. For example, as parents grow older, medical conditions such as Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia can make it impossible for them to make decisions regarding important issues like medical care and financial affairs.

It is critical that someone be able to take action on the behalf of those who can no longer care for their own affairs. Being named as a guardian will allow you to assume that role and provide your loved one with the caring guidance they need for their affairs.

Being named as a guardian can be fairly straightforward if no one contests your being named to that role. The process involves:

  • Application to the court
  • Reports from two physicians verifying incapacity
  • An account of the estate

Having an attorney by your side as you pursue appointment as a guardian can help ensure that the necessary information is provided to persuade the court that your petition is valid, that your loved one really needs the protection of a guardian, and that you should be appointed the guardian.
