Guardianship Assistance Tailored Toward Your Individual Needs

There are few more difficult choices to make than when deciding to establish a guardianship for a loved one. Establishing a guardianship often involves making of a number of financial, emotional, legal and medical determinations for a loved one when the person no longer is able to make those choices for himself or herself.

We at Crain & Associates, PLLC, understand the process for appointing a guardian, and the reporting and filing requirements accompanying such an appointment. I am principal attorney Jeff Crain and I regularly assist guardians in fulfillment of their duties. I provide the advice and guidance to make your job as guardian easier.

The Process For Establishing A Guardianship

Guardianship is an area of elder law which involves having a person formally put in charge of the financial and personal choices for another person who has been determined legally incompetent.

  • Oklahoma law recognizes the importance of these responsibilities by requiring the approval and supervision of the court.
  • During the process, there must be proof that the individual is unable to handle his or her own affairs and that the proposed guardian is trustworthy and suitable to carry out the guardianship duties.

As your attorney I will provide guidance on carrying out guardianship duties. I will help you understand what is required of a guardian, and assist you in carrying out many of the administrative tasks.

As a lawyer who understands the physical and emotional needs of elderly people and their families, I act as a powerful advocate for both guardians and for your loved ones. I work with assisted care facilities and nursing homes when dealing with elder law issues. I provide training and seminars regarding a large number of legal issues facing the elderly. I provide the sort of representation I would wish to have if I were in similar circumstances.
