Guardianship

Guardians are adult representatives who take responsibility of another person’s financial, legal, and medical tasks. Parents can appoint a guardian for minor children to ensure that the children are cared for by the individual who has been selected for that task. Guardians can also be appointed for an elderly individual through a will or trust. If you want to appoint a guardian to care for your children or yourself if you pass away or become disabled, you can obtain the legal guidance of our New York City attorney. With more than 20 years of experience in elder law and estate planning, we can represent you throughout each step of your case.

Why appoint a guardian?

At Meenan & Associates, LLC, our goal is to help you get the most out of your legal situation and to ensure that you appoint an individual capable of carrying out guardianship responsibilities. If you are an adult relative or family friend who wants to petition the court to be appointed as guardian of another individual, our firm can help you proceed with this action. Our New York guardianship lawyer understands the laws that are found under Article 81 of the Mental Hygiene Law. We also know the benefits of establishing a guardian to care for yourself or a loved one and can discuss this during a case consultation.

Our firm is proud to provide the high-quality level of service that you deserve. We encourage you to speak with an attorney prior to taking legal action to appoint a guardian in your will. By retaining the services of our team, we can help you ensure that your guardian is mentored and given complete documentation of his or her responsibilities.
