Having a power of attorney and health care proxy in place will ensure that during your lifetime, important financial and health-related issues will be handled according to your wishes. But what happens when someone without these documents becomes mentally incompetent?

In such a situation, a guardianship proceeding can be instituted by an interested party – usually a spouse, child or parent – to be granted the legal authority to act on behalf of the incapacitated person. The process for establishing a guardianship can be long, contentious and complicated. To maximize your chance of a successful outcome, having an experienced attorney is a must.

Article 81 Proceedings

An Article 81 Guardianship Proceeding may be necessary when an adult is legally determined to be unable to make his or her own decisions. Our knowledgeable attorneys at Angiuli & Gentile, LLP can help you and your family navigate through the guardianship process with ease.

Article 17-A Proceedings

People often think of incapacitation and guardianships as issues involving the elderly, but this is not entirely true. When an individual is developmentally disabled to the extent that he or she lacks the capacity to make his or her own decisions, a guardianship can be sought through Article 17-A proceedings. This allows parents to speak and act on their child’s behalf as his or her guardian, even after he or she reaches the age of majority.
