Family Law & Divorce
Guardianships generally fall within two categories. One is guardian of a disabled adult. Another is guardian of a minor child.
If a loved one has been incapacitated by illness or accident, they should have a legal guardian. At Bradshaw Law, our team has experience working with elderly, mentally ill and disabled people and their families with legal matters related to guardianship and conservatorship.
Illness, disability and age are a fact of life and will catch up with most of us eventually. It might reach a point where we are unable to care for ourselves and require assistance. This burden usually is placed upon the children, and it is a daunting and time consuming task, especially if they live out of state. That’s why it’s important to have a strong legal team on your side to make sure your loved ones are properly cared for.
If you are caring for a child of another whose parent or parents are unfit, unable, or simply unwilling, you may have a case to establish yourself as that child's guardian. Because parents have a constitutional right for the care, custody, and control, the law in this area can be quite complicated. Bradshaw Law has experience prosecuting and defending these cases.
