Establishing Guardianship

Trusted Evansville Family Lawyers Since 1997 – (812) 496-3071

According to state law, a guardian is a person who is legally responsible for someone else under the age of 18 years in order to oversee his or her legal, financial, and personal affairs. A guardian may also oversee an adult who is unable to manage his or her affairs due to incapacitation or old age. No matter the age, a guardian must act in the minor's or adult's best interests at all times.
