Finding Practical Solutions Involving Guardianships
Parents of children with special needs often face challenging decisions and legal concerns when their children approach age 18. It may be essential for you to keep access to medical and financial information and retain authority to make certain decisions on your child’s behalf. The need to establish a legal guardianship arises under a range of other circumstances as well, when a parent or other family member suffers an illness leading to diminished mental capacity.
At the Hollywood-based law firm of Rebecca H. Fischer, P.A., you will meet and work closely with a lawyer you can count on for sensitivity to your family dynamics. I am attorney Rebecca Fischer. I have broad, current knowledge of the types of guardianships appropriate for differing situations and of necessary proceedings in probate courts throughout Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties.
