Compassionate Texas Guardianship Attorney Guides You Through The Process

You work hard for your family, so knowing that you have planned for their long-term well-being and financial security brings you comfort. Planning for the care of loved ones after your death is vital, especially if you have minor children.  Making decisions about their future care is crucial, especially if you are a single parent or if both parents die at once. If you do not name a guardian, the court will appoint a guardian for your children and can make decisions adverse to your ultimate parenting goals.

Attorney Kevin L. Ferrier can answer all questions of guardianship, including:

  • What is guardianship?
  • How do I begin the process to appoint a guardian for my children?
  • What types of guardianships are there?
  • When is a guardianship warranted?
  • How long does it take a court to grant guardianship?
  • What does the guardian have to do?
  • Who can be a guardian for an adult?
  • How long does a guardianship last?
  • What is limited guardianship?
  • Can guardians be removed or have their guardianships modified?
  • What is the court’s role in guardianships?

Ensure your children’s future with an experienced guardianship attorney

Not everyone hires an attorney to ensure their children’s future, but sometimes it’s the safest and smartest thing to do. Guardianship law is complex and changes frequently. Courts are no longer giving appointed guardians free rein but are doing more to supervise them. After a parent’s death, in most states, the person who wishes to become a guardian must file a petition asking the family court or probate court for guardianship rights. Kevin L. Ferrier can effectively manage any guardianship issues or concerns you might have before things get complicated, and can clearly resolve any murky or confusing legal matters.
