Raleigh Guardianship Lawyers
The attorneys at Herring & Mills, PLLC, focus on meeting the needs of elderly, minor and incapacitated persons by establishing guardianships over their affairs. Our objective is to help able family members gain the right to take care of the legal, financial and health care needs of those who are unable to care for themselves.
Our law firm represents clients in the process of selecting and appointing a guardian. We handle all aspects of guardianship petitioning, including record gathering and court filing. We also represent family members who wish to contest the appointment of a certain person to act as a guardian or contest the guardianship entirely. We have the ability to effectively represent clients from the initial discussions, through litigation and appeals, if necessary.
Drawing on Our Range of Experience
Our experience includes all aspects of elder law and estate planning and administration, specifically related to special need circumstances. Our attorneys devote themselves to the service of the legal needs of the elderly, people with special needs or disabilities and their families. We draw on this experience to bring a comprehensive approach to guardianship cases.
Becoming a Guardian
If you are seeking to be appointed as guardian, it is important to understand your rights and obligations in this role. You will be in charge of making decisions and handling important affairs on your loved one’s behalf. Failure to make appropriate decisions can result in accusations of breach of fiduciary duty. We help make sure you are prepared to fulfill your duties. For example, there may be requirements for a bond and annual accountings to the court.
