Guardianship

Handicap Man

Families often seek guardianship for minors, developmentally delayed adults, and seniors. A legal guardian makes decisions on behalf of someone deemed by the court to be incapacitated or incompetent.

Since the guardianship process involves a lot of paperwork and deadlines, we suggest hiring a family law attorney. We can help you protect the personal and legal interests of a loved one.

Benefits of Guardianship

If you have a child with disabilities who's about to turn 18, we recommend hiring a family law attorney as soon as possible. We can help you determine whether guardianship is appropriate for your family's situation. For example, we may recommend your child give power of attorney to you or another trusted family member if they're able to understand that they need help with healthcare, finances, and other important matters. Otherwise, you'll need to petition the court to become your child's legal guardian.

We do more than just help you fill out guardianship forms. Our family law attorneys make sure that the ward (person under guardianship) is getting the care they need to live their best life. We're able to counsel your family and give you the facts you need to make an informed decision for your loved one's welfare. In other words, our guardianship lawyers can help you work toward a desirable outcome for the entire family.

Our guardianship attorneys serve families near Cape Coral, Fort Myers, and Naples. To request your free legal consultation with one of our Florida guardianship lawyers, call us toll free at (800) 283-7442.

“We were stressed out enough after the accident that cut our vacation short. I did not want to deal with insurance and doctor bills. LD&T took care of everything. We were able to focus on just getting better. THANK YOU!” - Kim K.

"Lusk, Drasites and Tolisano have been so helpful with one of the hardest times of my life after a car accident. Mark Drasites and his assistant Rebecca have kept me informed the entire way and put me at ease. They truly care for their clients and put your best interest first. They have helped me to get the best ending result possible and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for someone to represent them." - Jennifer H.
★★★★★
"I will highly recommend this firm to anyone. I went to Bruce l Schiner and to morgan and morgan, both of them turned me away, and would not take my case. I got Mark Drasites card from my doctor and not only did they take my case, I got $20,000 when my case was done. Mr. Mark and Rebecca took very good care of me and were always on top of everything. I would use this firm again if anything happens and I will recommend them to everyone I know." - TL K
