Guardianship is a sensitive process for everyone involved. Situations differ from case to case, and it is particularly important to have an expert guardianship attorney representing you and your loved ones.
The process can become more complex based on a variety of factors. Often, the non-parent who is seeking guardianship is a grandparent or extended relative. A parent may be involved and it is not uncommon for a parent to contest a petition for guardianship. We understand the difficult family dynamics that can affect the situation.
Many guardianship cases are a response to the neglectful and irresponsible behavior of an unfit parent. These situations create the need for extra sensitivity where the child or children may be concerned. Additionally, these cases are further complicated by the situation the parents are in, whether they are incarcerated, physically or mentally disabled, or simply not present.
The type of neglect is a key factor in how the case will proceed, and it takes experience to understand the best course of action based on the specific circumstances.
