McDowell Chartered helps families by keeping the best interests of the child in mind.

Guardianships are legal instruments designed to provide legal decision making authority to care for minor children, elderly family members and disabled children or adults that are unable to manage the daily decision-making. These legal instruments are typically sought by loving grandparents, uncles, aunts or family members who wish to enroll a family member in school, make decisions regarding health and educational decisions on behalf of the minor child.

A guardianship also allows for two siblings to share guardianship over a minor brother or sister. This is called a co-guardianship and is also known as a successor guardianship. In most cases, guardianships are complex and require the help of a family law attorney experienced in guardianships of minor or incapacitated individuals. If you or a loved one are seeking a guardianship of a family member, call McDowell Chartered to discuss you options and the legal process.
