Guardianship Lawyer In Houston — Protecting Those You Care About
Without a guardianship in place, the child or special needs individual will likely be placed by the state with a close relative, but there is no way of knowing exactly who will be granted custody. Guardianships allow the parent peace of mind that the minor will be placed with someone they trust to provide adequate care and management of the child's assets and any money left by the parent. If the ward has assets, the guardian is responsible to ensure that those assets are well managed and used entirely for the ward's benefit.
We also assist in creating trusts and special needs trusts to ensure that the ward is financially provided for. In cases of children, this involves disbursing the trust in a responsible manner, allotting only as much as the child needs until he or she reaches an age set by the parent. This prevents the child from coming into a large lump sum that he or she does not know how to manage or which could be mismanaged by others.
For special needs or disabled individuals, a special needs trust is important to ensure that he or she is cared for but not given too much, which would disqualify the individual from government assistance, such as Medicaid. Our attorneys are skilled in setting up trusts that will protect your ward.
