Guardianship of Incapacitated Persons

And individual 18 years of age or older, deemed to be competent and approved by the Court, can be appointed as a guardian of the person and/or the estate of a ward. The guardian must act in the best interest of the ward at all times. Furthermore, a guardian must either be a Nevada resident or serve as a co-guardian with a Nevada resident.

Guardianship of Minors

 

Typically, a minor has parents to protect and take care of their health and wellbeing. In the event that a minor no longer has a parent qualified to make legal decisions on their behalf, a guardian must be chosen either voluntarily by the family or appointed by the court.

 

Guardianship Litigation

A guardian has certain duties and responsibilities which are specified under Nevada law. Unfortunately, there are situations where an appointed guardian for a minor or incapacitated individual breaches, or fails to comply, with their fiduciary duties. When such a breach occurs, a guardian may be sanctioned or removed. Our attorneys can offer you their experience and expertise in seeking such sanctions or removals and in seeking the appointment of a preferred guardian.
