Which individuals can benefit from guardianships?

Guardianships may be of benefit to certain types of individuals in Pennsylvania. These individuals may include elderly loved ones, persons who are unable to handle their own financial or medical decisions due to some type of impairment or minors with special needs who are about to come of age. Sikov and Love, P.A., is here to help you through all the hurdles of determining if a guardianship is appropriate and establishing a guardianship though the Orphans' Court.

Guardianships and elder abuse in Pennsylvania

People in Pennsylvania who have elderly relatives requiring professional care know how important it is to find the right persons or facilities that they feel can provide safe and quality care. For some people, there are no relatives able to help with this process or to provide the care themselves. In these situations, a third party may be required to be named as a guardian. The guardian may be a family member as well. Details on establishing guardianships have been previously discussed.

When or why you should review your Will

Creating Wills and other estate planning documents may feel a bit onerous for many people in Pennsylvania. Once an estate plan is in place, however, many people feel very good about having prepared a plan and then assume that they do not have to think about these matters again. However, the reality is that an estate plan should be considered a living set of documents. Knowing when and why to review Wills and other estate planning documents is important.

Preserving your priceless collection

The things that matter to you may not always make sense to your loved ones, but any enthusiast feels a closeness to their collection – whatever the medium. While most of your personal effects may not matter to you once you’ve passed, your collection may be the only possessions you want a hand in deciding their fate.
