What is a guardianship and how do I know that one is needed?
 


Guardianships
Guardianship  is  a  proceeding initiated when an individual is no longer able to provide for his  or  her basic  needs such  as food, clothing and shelter;  when  that  person  is  no  longer  able to manage his or her health, property and financial affairs, whether due to a mental condition, brain injury, or due to an illness such as dementia or Alzheimer’s.

 
Fatima Breland  of  The  Breland Law Firm, P.C., has been helping families cope with the loss of capacity   of   loved   ones   by  walking   them  through   the  process  of   establishing guardianships.
Fatima   Breland   educates   her  clients regarding  the  complexity  of  initiating a guardianship and the court requirements  once  it  is  established, she arranges an  initial   comprehensive  conference   with prospect clients in order to map the road  to guardianship, exposing families to  the court  requirements in a  guardianship, to the  duties  of a  guardian, and to explain the role of court appointed attorneys, i.e., attorney ad litem, and guardian ad litem, if necessary.

The   role  of  the  attorney  ad  litem  is to represent the interest of the person to be under guardianship, and to ensure that less restrictive alternatives to guardianship have been considered.  Occasionally it is necessary for the court to appoint a guardian ad litem. The guardian ad litem investigates the circumstances surrounding the application, the applicant, the less restrictive alternatives to guardianship considered, and reports to the court regarding the best interests  of the  person to be under guardianship.
 
The  guardianship  path  begins  with  the   application  process, continues  through  the establishment of a  guardianship  and compliance  with the court requirements such as filing of the inventory and annual reports.  Fatima Breland  will be with you each step of the way.
 
Fatima  Breland  has served  as  guardian, attorney ad litem, guardian ad litem, and helps family members who are currently guardians of a loved one as their attorney.
