New Jersey Contested Guardianship Lawyers

A guardianship can be established by a court to protect the personal and financial interests of a vulnerable individual who has not previously signed a durable power of attorney. In many cases, a family member or other individual is appointed a guardian for a family member who may no longer be capable of managing his or her affairs with regard to daily life, health and finances.

Sometimes guardianship disputes require the assistance of an attorney. Many of these disputes occur when family members disagree regarding who should be appointed guardian, how that guardian should act or whether the guardianship is necessary.
