Protect the interests of those you care about. Particularly, vulnerable classes such as minors and special needs children. By determining guardianship for your children in the event you are no longer able to care for them, you are able to look out for their best interests even after you are gone. While this is not an easy decision, it is better to plan for these situations, rather than wait until it is too late. An experienced Fort Myers guardianship lawyer can help you establish a pre-need minor child guardian or special needs adult guardianship.
At the law office of Levins & Associates, L.L.C., we provide experienced, dedicated representation for all of our Florida clients' legal needs. With more than 40 years of combined legal experience, our team of attorneys provides compassionate and personalized legal solutions.
Pre-Need Guardianship For Minors
A pre-need guardian can be legally declared in case the legal parents die, become physically or mentally incapacitated or are no longer able to care for their child. This is done by filing a Declaration of Pre-need Guardianship with the court. For example, a pre-need guardian of your choice would assume all the duties and responsibilities of the child in the event of your death instead of your child potentially becoming a ward of the state.
Special Needs Adult Guardianship
Many children, once they reach the age of 18, have reached the age where they no longer require guardianship. However, in the case of special needs children, even as adults they may require legal guardianship. Our skilled attorneys can assist with this and help you provide and plan for your special needs child now and in the future. We also provide estate planning, wills and trusts services.
