Skilled Guardianship Attorneys Serving Butler, Warren, Preble, Clermont, Montgomery & Hamilton Counties

Unfortunately, old age, illness, and/or disability often affect all of us at some point in our lives. As a result, guardianships are typically established for people who cannot care for themselves, such as individuals with disabilities or those suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s.

Guardianship is determined by a probate proceeding. It is necessary when an incapacitated or incompetent individual does not have power of attorneys that provided for instructions in such a situation. The application process for guardianships can be daunting and confusing. The attorneys at Combs, Schaefer, Ball & Little can help you navigate the process to obtain guardianship over a loved one.

Two types of legal guardians

There are two types of legal guardian. The first is guardian of a person. This provides you legal standing to make important decisions regarding the healthcare and treatment that your loved one receives. The second type is guardian of an estate. This provides you power to make decisions about your loved one’s assets and property. Both types of guardianship can be held by the same person, or each can be provided to a different person, depending on the needs of your loved one.
