Protecting Vulnerable Adults
One of the most heartbreaking things that can happen to a family is when an elderly loved one becomes incapable of taking care of themselves. Equally tragic, is when an adult is incapacitated to the point of not being able to address their own needs whether it is caused by drugs, alcohol, or mental illness. When it becomes necessary for you to take care of someone in this situation, you have to get the court system to grant you guardianship of the person and/or guardianship of the property.
A guardianship puts the guardian in charge of making legal, medical, or financial decisions on behalf of the vulnerable adult - referred to as the reward. The process of obtaining guardianship can be daunting and very emotional.

This involves filing the Petition for Guardianship, containing the necessary medical certifications, responding to the court directives, and representing you in the hearing to determine if you are to be the vulnerable adult's guardian.
