Illinois Adult Guardianship

Illinois guardianship attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains how to file a petition for adult guardianship in Illinois

illinois guardianship lawyer

In this article, our Illinois guardianship lawyers explain adult guardianships in Illinois. One way to care your loved ones who have become mentally incompentent and ensure that their personal and financial needs are met is to become their legal guardian.  In Illinois, to be named a guardian for your loved one a guardianship proceeding must be filed with the appropriate court.  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 powers that would be granted by the court in a guardianship proceeding, without the need for a court order.

In this article, our Illinois guardianship attorneys explain guardianship of the person.  At the conclusion of an Illinois guardianship case, the court may name a guardian of the estate to manage the disabled adult financial affairs and a guardian of the person to manage personal and healthcare decisions.  We explain the “substituted judgment rule,” the standard that guardians of the person are required to use when making decisions for the disabled adult.  We also discuss the extent of the guardian’s power to make medical decisions on behalf of the disabled adult, whether the guardian has the power to decide where the disabled adult will live, and whether guardians can admit the disabled adult into mental health facilities.
