Iowa guardianship litigation lawyers

To become a guardian in Iowa, you need to create a petition to become the guardian of the disabled adult who is unfit to make decisions on their own behalf. There are a number of things required to file the petition including:

  • The reason that guardianship is being sought;
  • The names and addresses of any current guardian or agents appointed in the respondent’s healthcare or financial powers of attorney;
  • The name and addresses of the spouse, adult children, parents, and adult siblings of the respondent.  If none of these are living, then the nearest adult relatives of the respondent should be listed.
  • The name address of the person or institution with which the respondent is currently residing.
  • The approximate value of the respondent’s assets.
  • The expected annual income of the respondent.  

If another person is also seeking to claim guardianship over the same individual, it is very possible that this could become a contested guardianship matter.  These types of litigation matters require an experienced and skilled attorney for a successful resolution to the matter.
