Bingham Farms Guardianship Lawyers

Guardianships and conservatorships involve the appointment of an agent to make financial and personal decisions for the principal (called the "ward"). This often presents a difficult situation for many families. It is important to work with a legal team that understands the complex laws surrounding these appointments, a legal team dedicated to helping your family get the best outcome possible.

Our Metro Detroit guardianship attorneys understand the difficulty you face making these decisions, and we understand the complications involved. At Bingham Legal Group PC, our lawyers bring experience and skill, with a commitment to client service and flexibility.

Compassionate Assistance With Guardianship Issues

Appointing a guardian or conservator for a loved one requires a finding of incapacity. This means that the ward has lost the ability to make financial and health care decisions alone. If this person really does lack capacity, he/she needs someone to make these decisions, while his or her rights are suspended.

We represent:

  • Petitioners: If you have a family member who you believe has lost capacity, we can help you petition the court to have a guardian and conservator appointed.
  • Guardians and conservators: If you are a guardian or a conservator, we can assist you with the administration of your role.
  • Proposed wards: If you have loved ones petitioning the court to appoint a guardian or conservator on your behalf, we can help you dispute the appointment and retain control over your affairs.

Helping You Avoid Guardianships and Conservatorships

Although it might be difficult to think about, guardianships and conservatorships take away a great deal of your liberty by appointing someone else to take control of your financial and personal affairs, thus suspending your rights. The most important step you can take to avoid this is proper estate planning. We can help you establish a power of attorney and patient advocate which will appoint agents to handle your financial and personal affairs and leave instructions as to how these affairs should be handled.
