Guidance For Those Considering Guardianships And Conservatorships
If someone you love has a disability, special needs or has lost their capacity due to other circumstances, you might be considering a conservatorship or a guardianship. Making this choice is rarely easy and pursuing it in the legal system is rarely easy, either. At Bilello & Soowal, PLLC, however, we can help.
Our team of two attorneys works frequently with people throughout Florida who are considering seeking a guardianship or a conservatorship over someone they love. It often feels difficult to discuss private matters such as your loved one’s disability, illness or special needs. But with our trustworthy team, you will receive compassionate help.
Why Seek A Guardianship Or Conservatorship?
In situations where a person has lost their capacity, or their ability to make legal, financial and medical decisions for themselves, the court will name a guardian or a conservator. Guardianships usually address life decisions and medical care. Conservatorships are usually for finances. There are multiple situations in which one of these arrangements is appropriate, including:
- An intellectual disability
- A debilitating injury or illness
- A severe mental health condition
- A coma
- Other special needs
We can help you determine whether your loved one needs a guardian or conservator. Then, we begin the process with you, explaining your options and rights along the way. You have us on your side from the hearing to the decision and beyond, always advocating for you and your loved one’s best interests.
