We don't want to think about it, but who is going to look out for your best interests if something will happen? What about your children? Guardianship is not simply about having power over someone; it is about protecting individual's best interests, and providing them with the proper care they deserve.
These matters can get complicated when there is no legal framework in place assigning guardianship beforehand. That is why it is so important we have this difficult conversation, and assign guardianship before it becomes an issue. Hopefully, your guardianship framework will never be needed, but it is best to have it just in case.
The courts job in a guardianship case is to decide who is legally responsible, and best fit to look out for an individual’s wellbeing. While family relationships play a huge role in this, decision, this is not the only factor that needs to be considered.
