For many people, family comes first. At The Law Office of John H. Graves, PLLC, we understand that when a legal situation involving your family arises, you need to know and understand your options. That's why we take the time to listen and ask questions to learn more about you and the specific issues your family is facing.
Obtaining Legal Guardianship And Conservatorship
In cases where the safety and well-being of a child or adult family member is in question, we know that timing is often a critical factor. We are sensitive to and respect the individual needs of family members and work expeditiously to resolve issues related to guardianships and conservatorships in a manner that ultimately meets the best interests of all involved parties.
Guardianship and child custody matters involving minor-aged children are often especially emotional and time-sensitive. We provide advice and assistance to family members who are concerned about a relative's ability to provide and care for a minor-aged child and who wish to take action to obtain legal guardianship rights.
We also file petitions in legal guardianship cases involving adults who lack the ability and capacity to tend to their personal health and financial needs as well as petitions for conservatorships. While adult guardianship actions involve matters related to mental incapacity and tend to be involuntary, conservatorship actions are voluntarily filed by adults who are physically disabled and who wish to name a conservator to manage their property.
Our attorneys take a compassionate approach to guardianship and conservatorship matters and individuals who turn to us for assistance in these types of sensitive cases are provided peace of mind knowing that we will advise, guide and represent their best interests and those of their family members throughout the entire process.
