What Can a Guardianship Litigator Do?
Attorneys who practice guardianship litigation have the same end goal that you do. That is, to protect your loved one from any kind of mistreatment, whether it’s financial, mental, emotional, or physical. How they do this may vary from state to state, but generally speaking, an experienced guardianship litigator can help you:
- Determine whether your situation requires guardianship
- Navigate the process of having a court appoint a guardian
- Litigate (take legal action) against an unfit guardian
- Get a different, more qualified guardian appointed
- Gain access to your loved one’s finances in order to pay off their medical bills
- Handle related legal concerns that arise throughout these proceedings
For decades, our lead attorney, Kurt Anagnostou, has worked closely with families throughout Longview, Washington and surrounding areas. He has successfully resolved each of the above-listed scenarios (and more) and would love to do the same for you.
Resolving & Preventing Guardianship Issues
Whether you’re just noticing some red flags regarding your loved one’s care or you’re already knee-deep in a guardianship dispute, there’s still a lot you can do to prevent these issues from arising or recurring in the future. Namely, you should look into the possibility of updating your loved one’s will or trust. This step alone can prevent scammers from taking advantage of your loved one whenever they reach a vulnerable state. It can also minimize conflict between family members.
Even if you’re unable to create or update your loved one’s estate plan, now is a great time to update your own. That way, you can protect the next generation from having to go through the same legal headache you’re going through now. For more information, we invite you to visit our estate planning page.
