Adult Guardianship

Law Firm Servicing Long Island and New York Metro Areas

            If you find yourself caring for an adult loved one who cannot handle their own affairs, you may need to seek out an adult guardianship to ensure that your loved one will be cared for properly.  Whether the incapacity is due to illness, an accident, or the simple consequences of aging, you cannot wait for circumstances to get better on their own. When your loved one becomes incapacitated and needs assistance making financial or medical decisions for themselves, a guardianship proceeding may be necessary, especially if they do not have a Health Care Proxy or Power of Attorney in place.

            The guardianship law attorneys at David J. Lorber & Associates, PLLC will help you with every aspect of applying for, and managing, an adult guardianship for your loved one. We assist with all types of issues related to guardianships and conservatorships, including:

  • Guardianships for incapacitated individuals (Article 81 Guardianships)
  • Guardianships for people with developmental disabilities (Article 17A Guardianships)
  • Guardianships for infants and minors (Article 6 Guardianships)
  • Alleged Abuse or Neglect (Elder Abuse)
  • Contested Guardianships
  • Guardians Ad Litem (Court Appointed)

Adults with Lack of Mental Capacity

            Our experienced lawyers and staff will work with you to apply for an Article 81 guardianship for your adult loved one – including helping you compile evidence and advocating on your behalf in court. In addition, we will help you to comply with the statutory requirements to maintain your guardianship and avoid potential legal issues. We will ensure that you get a situation that protects the rights of your loved ones while also minimizing the legal and financial impact of the guardianship on you.

 

Adults with Developmental Disabilities

            Article 17A guardianships are used for developmentally disabled adults who will struggle with medical issues their entire lives, which is why they need legal oversight when they reach the age of majority (18 years old). We will help you ensure your loved ones will always have the care they need to thrive and live as independently as possible.

 

Infants and Minors

            Article 6 guardianships are used to protect infants and minors. We understand how difficult it can be to handle complex legal issues while also caring for a child.  With your specific needs in mind, as a client, you will receive the dedicated attention they need for their individual circumstances.
