Guardianship & Conservatorship Attorney, Hernando County, Florida
Are you caring for a grandchild, niece, or nephew, or the child of a friend whose parent is not capable of caring for their child due to drug addiction, incarceration, or illness?
Are you trying to help a young person whose parents have died or an elderly person who is no longer capable of handling their personal or financial affairs?
Our attorneys at Morris Law Group in Brooksville Florida, empower families to find legal solutions and claim control over their lives. For the situations above, we help individuals and families legal secure guardianship of children or sole conservatorship of dependent adults.
Guardianships and sole conservatorships are legal agreements that define who has the right to make decisions on behalf of children or dependent adults who are elderly or have special needs.
Guardianship: Children need the stability and security of an adult to watch over them. Guardianship allows an adult to enroll a child in school, to secure medical care or other services for the child. This is a simple legal process and yet many people wait until they are experiencing a problem. There is no need to wait — contact us at Morris Law Group to begin guardianship paperwork.
Sometimes a guardianship decision can expose conflicts within a family, such as when the child’s parents have died or are incarcerated and both sets of grandparents want to provide care. I work in the area of collaborative law, providing legal counsel in cooperation with a psychologist so that we can help families reach a mutually agreeable resolution.
If one party is not willing to cooperate, the collaborative law process will not be effective and litigation will be necessary. We are prepared to take your case to court.
Conservatorship: Morris Law Group of Brooksville Florida, will assist clients in obtaining sole conservatorship of adult children who are or have become disabled and are unable to make decisions for themselves; and for people seeking decision-making authority for elders who have suffered a stroke, dementia, or some other debilitating illness that prevents them from handling their own affairs. Typically, this is a simple legal process.
