Adult Guardianship

elmhurst guardianship attorney

In this Learn About Law podcast & videoblog, Elmhurst Guardianship attorney Kevin O'Flaherty of O'Flaherty Law discusses using Powers of Attorney to avoid the necessity of lengthy and costly guardianship proceedings if you become mentally incompetent.

elmhurst guardianship attorney

If you have aging loved ones or a loved one with a disabiilty, it is important to take the proper steps that ensures the best care and attention to their needs are met.  A great way to continue to care your loved ones and ensure their personal and financial needs are met is to become their guardian.   Guardianship may be granted by the court if your loved one is unable to communicate responsible decisions regarding personal or financial matters 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."  

If your loved one is still mentally competent, one alternative to filing for guardianship is to have them execute Healthcare and Financial Powers of Attorney, which can give you powers that would be granted by the court in a guardianship proceeding, without the need for a court order.

Our Illinois guardianship attorneys understand that both contested and uncontested guardianship proceedings are likely the highest priority for you.  Our Knowledge, skill and commitment along with exceptional communication will place you in the best position to succeed and give you peace of mind.

This can be due to a number of factors including: due to 

  • Mental illness
  • Age
  • Mental or physical disability; or
