Guardianship and 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 and 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 and Wisco can provide those services in an efficient and thorough manner.
