By Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq. a New Jersey Guardianship Attorney

Guardianships are useful when you are trying to take care of a child, another person, or an older adult that cannot manage his or her own affairs.  Taking care of another person can be challenging and stressful, but it can be done.  When you obtain a guardianship, it will transfer the legal authority for that person’s well being to you.  This gives you access to the person’s finances and personal affairs.

Guardianship is useful to make sure that that you don’t end up having to deal with hassles related to the various laws and regulations while trying to care for a disabled person at the same time.  This can be taxing for both of you, as you won’t know what kind of situation you will find yourself in next.

It is important that you are only obtaining a guardianship to help whomever it is that needs you.  Guardianships are a great tool to make sure that you have all legal authority necessary, so there is a huge legal and ethical burden placed on you to make the right decisions for that person.

In order to obtain a guardianship, you must first go to an attorney to see if he or she will help you with your case.  A trial is required in order for the person to be able to have a case for guardianship.  Guardianship is a long and drawn-out process, so it is important that you choose the right NJ guardianship lawyer to make sure that your rights are protected and comply with all applicable NJ guardianship law.
