Houston and Fort Worth Guardianship Litigation and Administration Attorney

Call to Discuss the Details of Your Case

Guardians take care of a child’s needs, including shelter, education, and medical care. A guardian may also take part in the management of a child’s financial assets. The human responsibility of guardianship will often cross paths with the legal parameters of the role.

If your family is considering guardianship or has questions about your status as a guardian, Keith Morris Attorney at Law can assist with the following scenarios:

Guardianship for a Minor in Texas

Guardianship for a minor is the legal process to protect any child under the age of 18 from neglect, abuse, and exploitation. To be named a guardian, Texas requires a hearing to present convincing evidence that a minor needs a guardian and that you are qualified to serve.

The approval process is not automatic, and an attorney can keep your family in the loop with updates from the court. Texas courts can deny applications for guardianship if they believe the minor can care for themselves. Consult with Keith Morris Attorney at Law before starting the guardianship process.

Guardianship for the Incapacitated

Guardianship for the incapacitated refers to the legal process used to protect adults who cannot care for themselves. Application for guardianship for the incapacitated can be a daunting process that goes beyond the basics of name, age, and relationship. The state will ask specific questions and require details about your life. Whether you need help with minor or adult guardianship.

Filing Lawsuits Against Guardians

Guardianship is a powerful position that is often misused. A guardian tasked with caring for a minor or incapacitated adult has full responsibility for their medical care, housing, education, and well-being. Abuse is a heinous crime and should be reported.

If you or someone you love is being taken advantage of by a guardian, contact Keith Morris Attorney at Law. A lawsuit may be the best way to address the abusive guardian.

Texas Guardianship Vs Conservatorship

Conservatorships and guardianships are ordered by the court. Family members usually request them when someone else needs to act on behalf of their loved one who is unable to make decisions on their own. Establishing a conservatorship or guardianship may be advisable depending on your loved one's needs.
