Alternatives to a guardianship

While most children are capable of making logical decisions once they turn 18 years of age, there are some who may not be. Whether your child has a mental disorder or some other condition that reduces his or her reasoning abilities, it can be wise to put in place legal parameters that will prevent poor choices once adulthood is reached. We at Zapolis and Associates, P.C., can help you determine the right form of legal support that will best meet the needs of your family member.

Guardianship of an Adult in Illinois

When a loved one has a disability and is above 18 years of age, a judge can choose a person to take care of their needs. This is known as guardianship of an adult. In Illinois, a person is considered to be disabled if they cannot make basic life decisions or manage their own property or money. As such, a family member or another concerned adult will be appointed as a guardian. The guardian will be responsible for making decisions concerning healthcare and financial issues that affect the disabled adult.
