Acting as a guardian of property for an individual who is incapable of making their own property decisions can be an overwhelming task for a friend or family member. When there is no one willing or able to act as guardian of property, a Siskinds lawyer can assist.
As court-appointed guardians of property, we have the extensive knowledge and experience necessary to develop an appropriate property management plan, keep proper accounting records as required by legislation, work with the individuals making personal care decisions, and work with service providers and supporting family members.
Our goals as court-appointed guardians of property are to help the individual realize their full potential by using all of the skills and abilities they have. We involve them in all decisions and plans to the extent that they are able, and build on their present circumstances to create a secure plan for the future including accessing available government programs and income tax incentives. Our guiding principle is to make timely, informed and effective decisions in the person’s best interests that are tailored to each unique situation.
