Guardianships & Conservatorships

Helping You Protect Your Loved Ones for More Than 16 Years

Guardianships and Conservatorship Attorney in Marietta, Georgia

Providing care for your loved ones is likely among your chief concerns in life. When trying to protect your loved ones, it can be helpful to know that you have a plan in place when unexpected incapacity in the family leaves your loved ones in need of care.

For more than 16 years, I, W. Frank Ward, P.C., have devoted my practice to helping protect the well-being and emotional welfare of families throughout the Marietta, Georgia, area. Using my experience and knowledge of the guardianship and conservatorship processes, I work diligently to provide the detailed and informative support you need to sort through and complete guardianship or conservatorship proceedings.

Designed by law to provide protection for a minor child, a disabled loved one or an incapacitated family member, the guardianship and conservatorship is a complex process. Throughout said process, I work diligently to help you address the unique concerns related to your specific situation while striving to help you find the most effective and efficient resolutions possible.

Effective Guardianship Support

Before a guardian may be appointed, the party interested in undergoing the process must petition the court. This process will be complex and involve court appearances and hearings. When undergoing the guardianship process, the assistance of an experienced lawyer can be invaluable toward ensuring that your loved one is protected through any contingency.

During the process, the powers of the guardian are examined in great detail. The guardian will become responsible for custody of the ward, making medical and care decisions, entering into contracts for healthcare, and applying for public healthcare assistance.

Detailed Conservatorship Guidance

Much like the guardianship process, with which, many times, it will go hand-in-hand, conservatorship proceedings often require the guidance of an attorney. Conservators become responsible for the financial well-being of their wards and will obtain the power to pay debts, enter into contracts, manage the estate and pay support for the ward.

Whether the guardian or conservator is granted a limited or broad range of power, the proper legal counsel can be invaluable for helping you address your family member's healthcare or financial needs.
