Atlanta GA Becoming A Guardian Or Conservator

Family can be our biggest asset. They support our hopes and dreams. They love unconditionally. They are the pieces of you that tell your story, that share your burdens, that light your way. So when a parent or other family member becomes ill, you want to show them that support, love, and light, the way they have for you.

Whether you have a big family or just one other sibling, situations with aging loved ones can be difficult. Everyone has their own idea of which way is the best way to care for Mom or Uncle Joe. If you’re having trouble determining a plan for care because there are too many voices, it may be time to pursue legal guardianship.

Guardianship Is Not Just About Kids

Guardianship is a sacred trust. Most people are more familiar with it in the context of children: responsible parents will designate guardians for their kids in case both parents die before the children are adults. But legal guardianship can also be granted for people who are not physically or mentally able to care for themselves.
