The Guardianship Process

This process can be complex because courts are trying to determine whether or not guardianship of an individual is needed and the best path forward for all involved. Whether you are pursuing a full guardianship or a limited guardianship, it is important to understand the available situations with the help of a guardianship lawyer.

More About Guardianship

An incapacitated person is defined as one who has a clinically diagnosed condition that prevents them from making care, help, or safety decisions for themselves. In these situations, the petitioner is the person asking to be named guardian and the respondent is the person who is believed to be incapacitated.

This is the legal process that gives a guardian the authority to make decisions for and take care of a child. We can help you to find out if you can become a legal guardian of a minor or to name your child’s caregiver.

This is applicable to situations in which you are bringing an outside guardianship or conservatorship case into the state of Massachusetts or registering another state’s order in Massachusetts.

Rogers guardianships are when guardians make decisions about medical treatment for someone with mental illness that is considered “extraordinary.”
