Responsibilities of a Guardian

In the state of New York, guardianships can be established for minors under the age of 18 or adults who are unable to care for themselves. A guardian can be appointed in a variety of ways, including in a last will and testament or by a court.

A legal guardian has a number of responsibilities in regards to the individual in his or her care. These responsibilities can include:

  • Making financial decisions and/or managing assets
  • Managing medical and healthcare-related decisions
  • Assisting with daily routines, including paying bills, arranging transportation, making living arrangements, etc.
  • Making decisions about education, if the individual is a minor
  • Handling all major (and minor) decisions on behalf of the individual

Whether you wish to ensure that your minor children are cared for in the event that you are no longer able to do so, or you want to make sure an adult relative is protected, our Albany guardianship attorney can help you take the necessary steps. Our firm can assist with everything from gathering and submitting the proper paperwork to providing preparation and representation during subsequent hearings.
