Guardianship in Oklahoma
In Wagoner, Oklahoma and in the surrounding counties, families are going through the difficult decision about guardianship for their loved one, whether a senior citizen, a family member with special needs or a child. In Oklahoma, the role of a guardian varies when it comes to the age of the individual or ward.
When it comes to a child, the guardian can use their financial resources to provide for the child. It is important to point out that in the court’s eyes, when it comes to minor children, there is not the permanence that would come with adoption, which has an implication on estate planning. You need to discuss any questions about the long term implications of guardianship with a Wagoner family lawyer at our office. A knowledgable Wagoner Guardianship Attorney can answer your many questions, during a confidential initial consultation.
A big difference in the responsibilities of a guardian for an adult that is physically or mentally incapacitated, or a senior citizen, is that the guardian may not be financially responsible of that individual. In situations like that, the court may appoint a conservator. It can be confusing trying to figure out the financial process, a Wagoner Guardianship Attorney at our firm can help clear up the confusion.
