Guardianship Contests

The process of obtaining a court-appointed guardian over the person or property of an at-risk individual can be stressful for all involved, even under the best of circumstances. When the guardianship appointment or determination of incapacity is contested, the stress and emotional difficulty increases exponentially. The attorneys at Rossway Swan are adept at managing these tense situations in the manner that best protects our clients’ interests, and works toward the optimal outcome for the alleged incapacitated person. Our full-service Guardianship department works closely with our Civil Litigation and Special Needs Planning departments to ensure that all facets of an individual’s situation are appropriately considered, and that guardianship, especially a contested guardianship, is utilized only when all less-restrictive means have proven inadequate to protect the alleged incapacitated person.
