We Provide Caring Support for Vulnerable Individuals and Their Loved Ones
Pollan Elder & Disability Law provides legal support for individuals who believe guardianship or conservatorship may be necessary for their loved one. Guardianship/conservatorship is a serious matter that significantly restricts the liberty of the ward. As such, the standard in Georgia for appointing a guardian or conservator is high. Guardianship requires that the proposed ward be unable to “make or communicate significant responsible decisions concerning his or her health or safety.” Conservatorship requires that the proposed ward be unable to “make or communicate significant responsible decisions concerning the management of his or her property.” We can help you determine whether guardianship/conservatorship is necessary based on your loved one’s condition and suggest viable alternatives, such as a power of attorney or advanced directive. If guardianship or conservatorship is necessary, we can help you petition the court to have yourself or another trusted individual appointed as guardian or conservator for your loved one. Pollan Elder & Disability Law provides sound advice and professional assistance with crucial decisions, no matter what challenges you face.
We also assist individuals who seek to become the legal guardian or conservator of a minor child or who want to choose another individual to become their child’s guardian in the event of their own incapacitation or death.
We Facilitate Seamless Transfers of Guardianship and Conservatorship
If it becomes necessary to move a Ward across state lines, a transfer of guardianship or conservatorship will be required. We have facilitated transfers of guardianship and conservatorship from another state to Georgia and from Georgia to numerous other states. Pollan Elder & Disability Law works to ensure that your transfer of guardianship or conservatorship moves quickly and seamlessly through the Georgia court.
