Denver Guardianship Attorney

Providing Protection for Children and Adults

Guardianships and conservatorships are established for people who need someone to oversee their personal affairs or finances. Children whose caregivers are no longer available to look after them or adults who become physically or mentally incapacitated might need the protection of a court-appointed guardian.

This is a legal process that requires sound advice from an experienced Denver family law attorney. At Karin Johnson Chatfield LLC, I handle conservatorship and guardianship matters with a straightforward approach and careful attention to your concerns.

Call today at 720-386-5511 to discuss how I can provide compassionate counsel for your case.

Legal Guardianship for Children or Elders

A legal guardianship is a formal decision by a judge to suspend the parents’ child custody and grant custody to a non-parent. A parent can also enact a guardianship transfer by means of a will or other legal document. This can provide peace of mind in case of a serious accident or unexpected issue.

This might be necessary in cases where parents:

  • Lack money or housing
  • Cannot provide a safe home because of drug abuse or domestic violence
  • Are suffering serious illness
  • Are required to serve a prison sentence
  • Have passed away

Guardianships for elders and other adults are important when health problems make it difficult or impossible for them to make their own decisions. Serious medical conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or stroke can affect adults of all ages and require the need for legal protections.
