Guardianship: An Overview

Last updated on June 9, 2021

The uncertainty faced when parents or elders lose the ability to care for themselves and their affairs can be overwhelming.  The decision to intervene and help is difficult, and your elderly loved one or a relative may not like it if you try.

The Law Offices of Patrick Accisano, L.L.C. assists clients in Monmouth and Ocean Counties who wish to establish a guardianship or conservatorship for adult loved ones who are incapacitated or disabled and cannot manage themselves.  Guardianships are also used to enable family members to care for developmentally disabled adults, or for young children.

A guardianship or conservatorship allows a trusted person to legally act on behalf of a vulnerable family member regarding financial and personal decisions.  It is a complex procedure that requires a petition in probate court and possibly contested hearings.  F. Patrick Accisano will help you take the steps necessary to assure that your loved one is cared for with dignity and effectiveness.
