If you become incapacitated and you have not appointed someone in a Power of Attorney for Health Care, who will make your health care decisions? If this occurs, one of your family members will need to seek appointment as your guardian of the person in a court proceeding. These proceedings are often emotionally charged events, and can lead to a hotly contested estate with various family members fighting for this control. Such a situation often results in significant legal fees for the petitioners and the disabled adult, and that doesn’t even count the emotional and familial cost.
The estate planning and probate attorneys at Spesia & Taylor have years of experience navigating the emotionally charged water surrounding a Guardianship of the Person and can help you secure your future without subjecting your family to long, expensive court battles.
