A Durable Power Of Attorney May Not Be Adequate
Some families may have established a durable power of attorney to guard against the risk of a loved one becoming incapacitated. While an individual holding a power of attorney has some authority to make decisions on behalf of the loved one, the power granted is limited and may be revoked at any time.
A guardianship is an appointment to act on behalf of another under court supervision. The guardian has a much greater scope of authority when acting on another person’s behalf than an agent holding a power of attorney. Guardians are also responsible for the ward’s physical well-being and can make sure they receive care in the facility best suited for their needs.
A court requires every guardian to be represented by an attorney because guardianship is a long, complex, legal process. Attorney Peter J. Snyder has more than 36 years of estate planning experience. He understands how to get a guardian appointed in a timely manner, providing you and your loved ones with greater peace of mind. He can also assist with other estate law matters, including probating an estate.
