If you feel that a loved one is in need of a guardianship, we recommend you first look at less restrictive alternatives and choose a guardianship as a last resort.
If there is ever any less restrictive alternative or less costly option, then that is always our first recommendation. There are 3 alternatives to guardianship.
Ancillary estate planning documents can be created as an alternative to a guardianship. These documents encompass disability and incapacity planning. Ancillary documents include: Durable Power of Attorney, Medical Power of Attorney, Directive to Physicians, HIPAA Authorization, and Declaration of Guardian.
