Learn More About a Guardianship in North Carolina


The establishment of a guardianship is important for loved ones who are unable to care for themselves, either due to their age or as the result of incapacity related to an illness or disability. It is also possible to name a guardian for your minor children as part of an estate plan, should the unthinkable ever occur.

At Kennedy Law Associates in North Carolina, our Charlotte guardianship lawyers can help guide you through this process to give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing that those most important to you will be properly looked after.

Establishing a Guardianship in North Carolina

Our guardianship attorneys can help you establish a guardianship for your minor children as part of our comprehensive estate planning services. We can also name a guardian for adults who are incapacitated. A guardian will be given the responsibility to make all major decisions on behalf of the child or vulnerable adult, including decisions related to health care, education and personal care.

When we meet with you, we will discuss your goals and what you hope to achieve by establishing a guardianship. It may be possible to establish a guardianship through the effective use of wills and powers of attorney. In other cases, such as those involving children or adults with special needs, more complex, long-term planning may be in order. Regardless of your unique situation, we will help create a plan that takes into account your wishes and provides you with the peace of mind knowing that your loved ones will be looked after.
