Guardianship

Guardianship Attorneys in Scottsdale, AZ

When a person is no longer able to take care of their personal needs, the law provides a solution. The creation of a guardianship empowers a guardian to make decisions regarding everyday living arrangements, health care, and legal matters on behalf of another person, known as the “ward”. The court can also establish a conservatorship to manage the financial affairs of the ward.

Singer Pistiner P.C., a dynamic law firm serving clients in the Scottsdale area, helps clients establish guardianships and conservatorships for their loved ones.

We can also advise and assist you in complying with the administrative and reporting requirements for guardianships and conservatorships.

Establishing a Guardianship

Typically, a family member seeks to create a guardianship for an older person who has become unable to care for themselves due to mental or physical incapacity. Children too, can require a guardianship, if they are disabled or become orphaned.

While courts in Arizona routinely create guardianships, certain requirements must be followed before a guardianship is established. The Court will hold hearings to determine if the individual is truly unable to care for himself or herself. It will also have to be satisfied that the proposed guardian has the ability and aptitude to properly carry out the duties of a guardian.

Singer Pistiner P.C. can:

  • Explain the legal process of obtaining a guardianship
  • Prepare the guardianship petition and supporting documents
  • Represent you in hearings
  • Help you comply with all legal and reporting requirements

Arizona Conservatorship Lawyers

The basic process for establishing a conservatorship is similar to that for a guardianship, though the Court has a slightly different set of concerns.

It is possible to establish both a guardianship and a conservatorship vested in the same person, though these duties can be given to separate individuals.

If you are named a conservator, you will have to report to the Court on an annual basis. Singer Pistiner P.C. can advise you as to your duties, prepare the annual report, and represent you in the annual hearing.

In addition to matters involving guardianships and conservatorships, Singer Pistiner PC can provide estate planning advice and services, including the drafting of wills, creation of trusts, and probate administration services.
