Spector Foerst & Associates is counsel to clients who require assistance in obtaining guardianship for an elderly individual, child or individual with disabilities already enrolled with the Department of Developmental Disabilities (DDD). The need for a guardian arises when an individual, regardless of age, is no longer able to care for themselves. This situation arises for many families who are searching for a way to care for and be legally responsible for their loved ones. Our firm can assist you in determining what the appropriate course of action is for you and your family and present your case to a judge.
Over the years, our attorneys have been appointed by the court to represent individuals with developmental disabilities and individuals who are unable to attend to their financial, legal and medical affairs in guardianship matters. As a result, we are able to guide you and your family through the process of seeking guardianship. It is highly recommended that individuals seeking guardianship rely on the services of an attorney as the process can be very complex and emotionally demanding on your family. The Court rules can be quite daunting for someone who is focused on caring for their needy relative.
