Protecting Your Loved Ones Through Guardianship
Our loved ones’ well-being is of tantamount importance. When our loved ones are unable to care for themselves, we are responsible for ensuring they get adequate care and help. But, this is no easy task. To ensure your loved ones get the legal protections and aid that they need, you will need to undergo a lengthy and often emotionally intense process.
The primary way that you can intercede when an adult loved one is no longer able to care for themselves is through guardianship proceedings. At Cipriano Law Offices, P.C., our legal team can help you accomplish your legal goals while providing tailored and considerate services that ensure you have a healthy emotional journey.
How Guardianships Provide For The Vulnerable
If you have a child who is severely intellectually disabled or an aging relative suffering from dementia, there are additional legal protections that guardianships provide. Depending on the type of guardianship you seek, the state of New Jersey grants guardians a variety powers, such as the ability to:
- Make legal decisions on behalf of the vulnerable person
- Determine courses of medical treatment, including surgeries and other interventions
- Control decisions about daily life, including travel and day-to-day care
- Manage the individual’s financial well-being, including management of their investments, property and bank accounts
As a responsible caregiver, guardianship can provide you with the legal capacity to fully care for your loved one. The process is emotional, but our team can help you navigate the legal requirements with clarity and ease.
