Plenary Guardianship

Navigating the realm of guardianship can be complex and challenging. At Aguila Law, we’re committed to providing comprehensive, compassionate legal support during these critical times. One of our primary areas of focus is Plenary Guardianship, where we dedicate ourselves to represent and protect the rights of those who cannot care for themselves.

Understanding Plenary Guardianship

Plenary Guardianship is a legal arrangement where a guardian is appointed by the court to manage all aspects of a person’s life and assets. This form of guardianship is typically implemented when an individual is completely unable to take care of themselves or make decisions regarding their person or property.

The Role of a Plenary Guardian

A plenary guardian is responsible for making all decisions on behalf of the individual, referred to as the ward. These responsibilities can include making personal decisions such as housing and healthcare, as well as managing the ward’s finances. At Aguila Law, we assist individuals and families in understanding and fulfilling these responsibilities, ensuring that the best interests of the ward are always upheld.

Establishing Plenary Guardianship

The process of establishing plenary guardianship involves a comprehensive court procedure, which includes assessing the ward’s mental and physical condition, their ability to make decisions, and the appropriateness of the potential guardian. At Aguila Law, we guide our clients through every step of this intricate process, providing legal advice and support.

Protecting the Rights of the Ward

While plenary guardianship grants the guardian extensive powers, it is essential that the rights of the ward are still protected. This includes ensuring they receive proper care and respect, and their preferences are considered whenever possible. At Aguila Law, we are committed to advocating for the rights of the ward and ensuring their dignity and autonomy are respected.

Monitoring and Review of Guardianship

Once a plenary guardianship is established, it’s important to monitor the actions of the guardian to ensure they are acting in the best interest of the ward. At Aguila Law, we provide ongoing support to our clients, including regular reviews of the guardianship arrangement and advocating for the ward’s rights in court if necessary.

Considering Alternatives to Plenary Guardianship

While Plenary Guardianship can be the right choice in some situations, it is not the only option available. Other forms of guardianship or alternatives like power of attorney or representative payees may be more suitable depending on the circumstances. At Aguila Law, we are experienced in assessing each situation individually and can advise on the most suitable course of action based on your specific needs.

At Aguila Law, our dedication to providing guidance on plenary guardianship is unwavering. We are committed to helping our clients navigate these complex legal waters, ensuring the best possible outcomes for the individuals we serve.
