Learn About DeKalb County Guardianship

DeKalb County Guardianship Law Attorneys, DeKalb County Guardianship Lawyers

In Illinois, in order to be a guardian a guardianship proceeding must be filed with the appropriate circuit court.  Typically, guardianships may be granted by the court if your loved one is unable to communicate appropriate decisions regarding personal or financial matters. This can be due to a number of factors including: due to 

  • Mental illness
  • Age
  • Mental or physical disability; or 
  • Poor life choices such as "gambling, idleness, debauchery, or excessive use of intoxicants or drugs."  

To be named a guardian, you will be required to obtain an expert's report certifying that the guardianship is appropriate. The report needs to be reviewed carefully to ensure that the expert's certifications are accurate, and the correct type of guardianship (limited or total/plenary guardianship) is recommended.
