Longmont Elder Law Attorney
Reliable Help for Contested Guardianship Issues in Colorado
When a person has lost the legal capability to make decisions independently
but have not created a medical or financial durable power of attorney,
the court may be asked to appoint a guardian to oversee their personal
affairs. In the majority of cases, this power is granted to either a spouse,
sibling, adult child, a third party professional, or another person with
interest in the disabled person’s wellbeing. When a person is appointed
as a guardian, they will be responsible for making personal decisions
for their loved one including where they live, what type of medical treatment
they should receive, and more.
