Dealing with the incapacity of a loved one is an extremely challenging time that can leave you feeling helpless. At Bolinger Law Firm in St. Louis, we understand your burden and work with you to make sure that your loved one has the necessary support system in place to tend to their financial and medical affairs.
If your loved one is incapacitated without a validly executed power of attorney in place, you may not know what the next step is to ensure that your loved one is taken care of. That next step is the legal appointment of a guardian and/or conservator.
Without a valid guardian or conservator, it is extremely challenging to coordinate with the necessary financial and medical institutions to facilitate the care and maintenance of your loved one. A St. Louis guardianship and conservatorship attorney at the Bolinger Law Firm will discuss with you the legal process of becoming a guardian and/or a conservator, inform you of the duties imposed on guardians and conservators, and represent you through the legal process.
To begin the process of becoming a guardian and/or conservator, it is best to reach out to the Bolinger Law Firm first. We can guide you, ensure that you are completing the process legally, and become your advocate in the event of your request being challenged.
Be aware, sometimes guardianship and conservatorship proceedings can be contested when multiple parties want to be appointed. At that point, it is imperative that a St. Louis guardianship and conservatorship attorney represents you so that your loved one will receive the most suitable party to care for and represent his or her interests.
