Guardianship Attorney & legal services for the following cities: Frisco, Plano, Prosper, McKinney, & Allen. When someone is disabled and unable to care for themselves, or their property and finances, a guardianship may be necessary.

A guardianship can be created upon the application of any person. The court can appoint someone to be a guardian over a disabled person and/or a guardian over the disabled person’s money and property (estate). Probate courts have jurisdiction over guardianship proceedings and an individual applying to become someone else’s guardian must be represented by a lawyer who is certified to counsel and represent individuals in guardianship proceedings.

Recently, there have been many changes in Texas law concerning guardianship that have caused Texas courts to take additional precautions before creating guardianships and appointing guardians. For example, the new Texas guardianship laws encourage individuals who are considering guardianship for a disabled person to first consider and implement available alternatives to guardianship.
