Guardianship & Guardian Ad Litem Services
Guardianship allows a qualified adult to care for a child or incapacitated individual. Many situations can create a need for guardianship. Common scenarios include adult children caring for parents in failing health or family caring for children whose parents are struggling with addiction. A consultation with the attorneys at Foley Peden & Wisco can help determine whether guardianship is the right answer for you and your loved ones.
In many guardianship cases, the court will appoint a guardian ad litem (sometimes called a “GAL”). This person represents the best interest of the person who will be placed under the guardianship. The guardian ad litem will investigate both the need for a guardianship and whether the proposed guardian is the most appropriate person to serve in that role. If your guardianship case requires a guardian ad litem, Foley Peden & Wisco can provide those services in an efficient and thorough manner.
