Select a Legal Guardian to Act on Your Behalf

A Declaration of Guardian is a legal document where you list a person or people you trust to act as your agent/guardian if you are unable to make decisions on your own.

Within the Declaration of Guardian document, there are two areas where you will list a guardian:

Guardian of Your Person

A guardian of your person can make legal decisions concerning your medical care and safety if you are incapacitated.

Guardian of Your Estate

A guardian of your estate can make legal decisions for you, if you’re incapacitated, concerning your finances, property, and any other source of wealth.

There Are So Many Options. What Kind of Protection Is Best?

A Declaration of Guardian is very similar to a Power of Attorney and Medical Power of Attorney. Our estate planning attorneys can guide you through the process and choose the best documents for your situation.
