Our Guardianship and Conservatorship Attorneys Make Sure Your Dependents are Provided For

When devising your estate plan, the care of your children is likely your foremost concern. The attorneys at McQuigg, Smith & Corry, LLC can provide you with sound advice and professional assistance with crucial decisions about the financial support, protection, and guardianship of your children.

Choosing a Guardian for Your Child

It is appropriate to select and name a guardian who will raise your children according to your parental philosophies. You should be aware that sometimes the court may reject a guardian who it finds is unwilling or unable to care for your child. Our attorneys, therefore, suggest that you name an alternative guardian who can step into the role if your primary guardian choice is unavailable or rejected by the court. Our attorneys also recommend that you thoroughly discuss your decision with your chosen guardian to make sure the guardian is willing and prepared to accept the full responsibility of caring for your child as you wish.

The Importance of Making a Will

Having named a guardian for your children is especially important if you are a single parent or in case both parents die at the same time. If you have not named a guardian for your children, the court appoints the guardian for your children — and may make a very different decision about that than you would have. Assert your right to make such parenting decisions and have them enforced by drafting a will — and updating it if the guardian you have designated dies or becomes incapacitated.

Caring for an Incapacitated Adult

Our lawyers can help you arrange for the care of an elderly parent or disabled adult. We can assist you in the process to have yourself, or another concerned and qualified loved one, appointed as conservator. We can also guide you in choosing a professional conservator to manage your loved one’s financial needs responsibly for their best interests.
