Guardianships - Application Drafting & Appearance

From time to time an incapable person may not have made a power of attorney. In that situation, a guardian may need to be appointed by the court to make decisions on the incapable person’s behalf with respect to property and personal care. The proposed guardian is most often a close friend or family member. They must file a court application which includes a detailed plan setting out relevant information about the incapable person’s circumstances and how the proposed guardian will manage their property and personal care. Our estate team can assist with all aspects of the guardianship application including drafting documents, arranging capacity assessments and appearing on the application.
