When a parent, friend or adult child lacks the ability to make decisions for themselves, you may be left in a situation wherein you are required to step in to act on their behalf. Guardianship applications can be used in these circumstances to allow you to make decisions concerning the financial affairs and personal care of the incapable individual. In these types of situations, you can apply to the Court or the Office of the Public Guardian and Trustee to be appointed as a guardian.
Although both avenues possess certain obstacles and challenges, Law In Motion Professional Corporation is familiar with the Guardianship application process and can provide advice and guidance in completing and filing the applicable forms as well as choosing the avenue that is most appropriate in your circumstances.
