Guardianship

New Hampshire Guardianship Lawyer

Experienced Elder Law Attorneys

Guardianship, for adults, is the court process by which a court finds a person (known as the ward) to be mentally incapacitated and appoints a guardian to make decisions for the ward.

New Hampshire has two types of guardianship. A guardian of the person has authority to make decisions over the ward’s living arrangements and health care. A guardian of the estate has authority to manage the ward’s finances.

Durable powers of attorney for health care and finances usually make guardianship unnecessary, avoiding what can be a time-consuming and expensive court process. However, for individuals who have not prepared such documents in advance of becoming incapacitated, guardianship may be the only alternative.

If you need to manage the finances, health care, or living arrangements for your incapacitated parent or other loved one, our attorneys at Shaheen & Gordon, P.A., can advise you on whether a guardianship is necessary and can guide you in that process.
