Helping Chicago Families Protect Their Loved Ones By Establishing Guardianships

Guardianships usually come in two forms — those intended to protect minors, and those meant to safeguard the interests of adults. At Tarick Loutfi and Associates, we have more than 20 years of experience helping families understand their options when establishing adult guardianships for loved ones with disabilities or those with minor children.

Giving You The Information You Need To Protect Your Loved Ones

For many families, they know their loved one requires certain legal protections, but they don't understand the best methods for securing those protections. When you sit down with our attorneys, we will review all aspects of your family's situation as we help you determine the most effective plan when working through any of the following issues:

  • Establishing guardianships for disabled adults or children — often for children and young adults with autism, muscular dystrophy, and elderly individuals suffering from Alzheimer's and dementia
  • Selecting guardians for minor children as part of the estate planning process
  • Defending against guardianship removal proceedings
  • Initiating proceedings to have a guardian removed

Guardianships can be complex and there are numerous options and alternatives to consider. For instance, you may wish to establish two guardians for a disabled loved one — one to care for the physical interests of the ward, and the other to provide for the legal and financial issues affiliated with the estate.

Opposition And Removal Of A Guardian

Determining who will be appointed the guardian of a disabled loved one can be a contentious issue. In many cases, a family member will voice concerns regarding the capabilities or intentions of an appointed guardian and initiate proceedings to have that person removed.

Whether you wish to establish guardianship of a minor or an adult, defend your status as guardian or believe that someone else would be better suited to care for your loved one, we can help you understand your options and take decisive action.
