Guardianship in Cheyenne, WY
Once your child reaches the age of 18, he or she is considered to be an adult in the eyes of the law. That means you are no longer allowed to make many important decisions for them. In most cases, that’s totally appropriate. But what if the child has a medical condition or a developmental disability and is unable to care for themselves? Or what if you are the adult child of a parent who has lost the capacity to care for themselves? In order to continue making decisions about your loved one’s medical care, place of residence, finances, and more, then you’ll have to be appointed as guardian. Having the right guardianship lawyer by your side is essential to the guardianship process.

Once you are appointed by the court as a guardian, you’ll be legally empowered to act on behalf of either a disabled adult or a minor to make sure that their rights, safety, welfare, and health are adequately protected.
