Guardianships

If you are considering a guardianship as part of your estate plan — but the mountain of details, including financial consulting documents, filings and accountings, seems overwhelming — our experienced Delaware lawyers at Street & Ellis, P.A., can assist professional and individual guardians in all aspects of fulfilling their fiduciary duties.

For more than 40 years, we have guided clients in Dover and Kent County to sound decisions about all aspects of estate planning, including guardianships, by providing these quality legal services:

  • Establishing the guardianship: Even the initial phase of a guardianship can be complicated and challenging, as it requires participation and coordination among the doctors, family members and the court for a finding of incompetence. We help collect all the data, efficiently coordinate efforts with all of the people involved and represent clients in courtroom guardianship hearings.
  • Ongoing financial duties: A guardian has to make many decisions on behalf of the principal, including buying and selling real estate, making investment decisions and paying debts while following the principal's general financial plan.
  • Regular accountings: Depending on the guardianship, regular accountings will be required at regular intervals: every month, quarter or year, for example. We help clients compile, organize and present these accountings.

Whether the guardianship you are contemplating is for yourself, a senior loved one or child with special needs, our law firm has the resources and responsiveness that can help you achieve your goals.
