Gainesville VA Guardianship Lawyer Laura Moldowan
Representing Virginia Clients in Guardianship Matters
The discussion surrounding a potential guardianship issue can be difficult for many families. Pursuing guardianship over an adult (called the “ward”), whether he or she is elderly or disabled, may be greatly disputed among members of a family, friends of the individual in question or between interested parties and the individual themselves.
At the office of Dominion Wealth Law, PLLC, clients trust me, attorney and former CPA Laura Moldowan with their guardianship and other estate planning issues. I have extensive experience helping clients with guardianship matters from either side of the issue. My goal is to see that the case is resolved in a way that suits the best interests of my client.
Herndon Adult Guardianship Law Firm
In some situations, a guardianship over an adult (the ward) must be established in order to ensure the safety and well-being of the ward. These adults, who are incapable of caring for themselves, may have reached that point due to a variety of reasons, including age, physical disability, mental disability, mental illness, dementia or drug addiction. The ward may require the intervention of a loved one or friend to ensure their needs are being met and that they are able to thrive as fully as possible.
When exploring the option of guardianship over an adult, many different questions must be answered, including:
- Who should be named guardian?
- What is needed, physically and mentally, to take care of the ward?
- Are the ward’s finances being properly managed?
- How and when should medical attention be provided?
I can represent clients who are seeking guardianship over an individual, those individuals attempting to prevent the guardianship, or even the adult in question if he or she does not believe that supervision by a legal guardian is required.
I also handle cases in which I represent guardians if they are in need of modifying the terms of the existing guardianship documentation.
