GUARDIANSHIP OF MINOR CHILDREN
Determining guardianship for your children will likely be one of most important parts of estate planning. You want to make sure your kids are taken care of if you pass away suddenly. Without determining guardianship in your will, your children's guardian may be decided by the court. I know how important it is to my clients to ensure their wishes are carried out, especially when it comes to their kids. I can help make sure your will establishes a guardianship plan that is best for your family.
At The Law Office of Mark E. Harden in Weatherford, I work with you on a plan that fits your needs. I have more than 20 years of experience as an attorney, working with clients throughout Parker County and nearby areas in Texas.
GUARDIANSHIP FOR ADULTS
I see many clients who need assistance with guardianship for adult members of their family. These instances include special-needs guardianships and guardianships for the elderly.
These are unique cases that include medical implications. Determining the best plan for a special-needs child when he or she reaches 18 can be a difficult decision. If the person is not able to live on his or her own or is vulnerable to being taken advantage of by others, it is important to establish a guardian, most often a parent or family member who can help manage affairs and protect the adult child.
This also happens with the elderly. If you have a parent, grandparent or another family member who can no longer care for him or herself, or is vulnerable to being taken advantage of by others, you may be able to establish yourself as a guardian. It is important to work with an experienced lawyer on these issues.
