Guardianships for Developmentally Disabled Individuals
Guardianships for developmentally disabled individuals are now being required as they reach the age of majority at 18. A guardianship order is necessary to ensure the uninterrupted ability of the parent(s) to make health care and financial decisions and obtain governmental benefits for their eligible son or daughter, as they are now adults in the eyes of the law.
This trend requiring a guardianship for all applicable adult individuals is not the result of a change in law. Rather, medical service providers, banks and governmental agencies are simply requiring parents of developmentally challenged adults to strictly conform to existing law to secure formal legal authority to allow them to continue to make decisions, both personal and financial, for their now adult children. A knowledgeable, experienced attorney can ease what may otherwise be a difficult and confusing process to obtain the required guardianship from the courts.
