Legal Guardianship Assistance
At 18 all individuals, including those with developmental disabilities, reach the legal age of majority. This means that parents can no longer make decisions legally on behalf of an adult child, regardless of the nature of the individual's disability and regardless of whether or not the individual still lives with the family.
Some families decide to explore guardianship as an option for their family member. Although it is possible to obtain guardianship without an attorney, some families use an attorney.
Embarking on the legal guardianship journey for a loved one with developmental disabilities can be both complex and emotionally challenging. At Caring For Families Social Services, we understand the importance of securing a stable and supportive future for your family member, and we're here to guide you every step of the way without the use of an attorney or high legal fees.
Our compassionate team is committed to understanding your specific situation and providing tailored support to ease the process.
No two cases are alike. We take the time to understand your family's needs, ensuring that the legal guardianship application reflects the best interests of your loved one with developmental disabilities.
Filling out the legal guardianship application can be overwhelming, but we're here to streamline the process for you. Caring For Families Social Services' representatives will guide you through the paperwork, ensuring accuracy and compliance with all the requirements.
Empowerment Through Knowledge
We believe in empowering families with knowledge. Throughout the application process, we provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions, fostering a sense of confidence and control.
Caring For Families Social Services is committed to providing cost-effective solutions to make legal guardianship accessible to all who need it. The cost for helping you fill out the legal guardianship application and helping you along the process has a flat fee of $200.00. We understand that accessing guidance shouldn't be a financial burden, therefore we review each case prior to charging the flat fee as some of our cases can be done pro-bono for low income families.
