As a potential guardian of a minor child in Indiana, you probably have questions. At our family law firm, we provide comprehensive information regarding family legal issues, guardianship, and more. Generally speaking, a guardian of a minor child assumes the role of the natural guardian. The guardianship is protected by law. This means that the guardian oversees the minor child’s day-to-day routine and upbringing until the child is 18 years of age.
The family law office of Vanessa López Aguilera is dedicated to protecting the rights of parents, guardians, and children. We put our thorough understanding and knowledge of the Indiana laws governing family legal issues to work for you.
For disabled children, parents need guardianship appointments when the children reach age 18 in order to continue making financial and health care decisions.
For parents who can no longer make decisions for themselves due to Alzheimer’s or senile dementia, adult children need guardianship appointments to have the legal authority to take care of their parents – if the parents do not have powers of attorney forms. The guardianship appointment gives the guardian the right to make health care and financial decisions on the parent’s behalf.
At the López Law Office, we can advise you on any of these types of guardianship applications. We will guide you through the process and help ensure it goes as smoothly as possible.
We offer a skilled and understanding approach, based on your needs. Together, we will explore the options that may be available to you, and create a solid solution that addresses your concerns and wishes. We offer an initial consultation, in which we will evaluate your case and talk with you about how you may wish to proceed.
