Colorado 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.
Sometimes, disagreements can arise over who is best suited to be named the legal guardian. These disagreements often stem from long-standing divisions in a family. If you are struggling with a conservatorship or guardianship issue, you should involve an attorney right away.
