Knowledgeable Advice About Guardianships
A guardianship, whether for an ill or aging parent or a child in need of a stable and dependable environment, is designed to provide for the physical and financial protection of those who cannot provide for themselves. Whether you are stepping forward to help a person in need by taking on the role of a guardian, or you are seeking to maintain your independence in the face of a guardianship proceeding, it is best to have legal counsel to ensure that rules and procedure are followed to the letter of the law.

I have the knowledge and resources to take on even the most complex cases involving adult guardianships as well as guardianships involving minors.
Experienced Oklahoma Guardianship Representation
My family law office represents clients in guardianship cases for:
- Adult guardianship — If an adult is physically or mentally incapable of taking care of themselves, then a loved one may step in and seek a guardianship through the courts. This is most common in cases where an aging or seriously ill parent is put into the custody of a son or daughter, such as in cases involving Alzheimer’s disease. It can also involve individuals facing the challenges of mental disability or developmental disorders.
- Child guardianship — If a child is in a dangerous environment or does not have a fit parent taking care of his or her needs, then a loved one, such as a grandparent, can step in to act as a legal guardian and provide a safe, secure home. These cases often involve a parent who has become involved with drugs or who presents a direct danger to the child.
Protecting Clients In Unfounded Or Contested Guardianships
There are two sides to every story, and while many guardianship requests go uncontested, I also represent interested parties who have legitimate cause to prevent a guardianship. If you feel that a guardianship request that directly affects you is unfounded or even fraudulent, then it is important to talk to a lawyer who can help you protect your rights in court.
