Overland Park Guardianships and Conservatorships
Life changes from one breath to the next. Sometimes we’re prepared, and at other times life swoops in with a challenging circumstance, like the need to appoint a guardian or a conservator for a minor, or for an adult who can no longer manage their own affairs. That’s when Boothe Walsh Law & Mediation can help you steer confidently through what can easily become overwhelming waters of emotional uncertainty. We are experienced in all the processes involved in securing guardianship and/or conservatorships for your loved ones.
In Overland Park, a guardianship appointment gives one or more people the legal authority to make personal and health-related decisions on behalf of someone who is unable to make those decisions for him/herself. A conservatorship involves making financial decisions on behalf of someone who is unable to do that for him/ herself. One person, or sometimes more than one, may be appointed to act as both the guardian and conservator, or one person may be appointed as the guardian and another person as the conservator. Depending upon what your loved one needs, the process of establishing a guardianship and/or conservatorship in Overland Park or anywhere in the state of Kansas can seem complicated and daunting when you are unfamiliar with the processes and the options available to you.
The attorneys of Boothe Walsh Law & Mediation are well-versed in all types of guardianships and conservatorships available in the Overland Park area. We will take special care to help you determine which option is the most beneficial for your loved one and your family, and which one makes the most sense to your particular situation. Whether you need to assist an elderly family member with the transition to assisted living, or you have a special needs child who is about to cross the threshold into adulthood, we want to help guide you and ensure the process maintains the dignity of everyone involved, and that the final solution provides the appropriate level of self-sufficiency for those being placed under care.
