Guardianship Attorney in Dallas, TX
Skilled Handling of Guardianship Issues
Under some circumstances it is necessary to take over guardianship of a friend or loved one. Most people are familiar with the idea of applying for guardianship in order to raise children who are not their own and who are without parents, but sometimes it is necessary for a parent, sibling, or other relative who is not capable of making decisions concerning personal welfare. If you find yourself in this situation, turn to a Dallas family law attorney from the Mathur Law Offices, P.C., for assistance. The legal team understands how difficult this decision can be and will navigate the complexities of applying for guardianship step-by-step.
When an individual is unable to make routine decisions as a result of being disabled through accident or illness, or is otherwise mentally incapable, guardianship may be the best way to care for your loved one. In Texas, applications for guardianship are filed with the probate court, or any court which handles probate matters. To be appointed guardian of an adult, one starts the process with an application which is accompanied by a letter from a physician giving information concerning the condition of the individual which makes guardianship necessary. The court will appoint an attorney to represent and protect the individual's legal rights throughout the proceedings.

Guardianship matters can be addressed knowledgeably for clients throughout the Dallas, Fort Worth, Denton, and Tyler areas.

Obtaining guardianship over another individual is a complex matter. Each case is unique. A guardian must meet the courts' requirements, which includes posting a bond and taking an oath. The requirements for a guardian of the estate are much greater than for a guardian of the person. Contact a Dallas family lawyer from our firm to learn more about guardianship.
