Assistance With Guardianships In Nevada
A guardianship typically becomes necessary when a person is no longer able to manage his or her own estate and/or care for himself or herself. It can be obtained over a person, an estate or both.
To find out how appointing a guardian can help you enhance your estate plan, contact the law firm of Abrams Probate & Planning Group in Las Vegas. I offer a free consultation.
What Is A Guardianship?
In its simplest terms, a guardianship is a court-supervised proceeding where a person (the guardian) is appointed by the court to act on behalf of another (the ward) and/or to manage the ward’s assets if the ward is a minor or incapacitated.
At Abrams Probate & Planning Group, I can help you through the legal process. I can also explain the rights and responsibilities that go along with this position. This may include tax and accounting responsibilities.
Can I Avoid Appointing A Guardian?
Guardianships require court supervision, can take several weeks to establish and can be costly. With proper estate planning, you can often avoid the need for one altogether. I can explain other estate planning steps that can be taken to give similar legal protections. If it becomes necessary to establish a guardianship, I am here to help guide you through the process.
