Trusted Family Law Advocate Providing Effective Solutions to Resolve Your Legal Matters

Joplin Guardianship Lawyer

Serving Clients in Jasper County

A guardian is appointed by the court to provide care and custody for a minor child or an incapacitated adult. Guardians have the legal right to make decisions on behalf of the other person. While parents are usually guardians of their child, a parent who is unwilling, unable, or unfit can have the court appoint a different guardian. As one of the most important issues in our client’s lives, we work tirelessly to provide answers and guidance throughout guardianship cases.

Establishing Guardianship in Missouri

Guardianship can be a complex and involved legal process, which is why it is always recommended to use an experienced family lawyer. We seek to help you navigate the process quickly and efficiently, saving time, money, and stress.

Under Missouri law, the following steps are taken to establish a guardianship:

  • Obtain and complete a Petition for Appointment of Guardian and Conservator
  • Deliver the petition to the court clerk and local Sheriff’s office
  • Prepare evidence of why guardianship should be awarded
  • Undergo a court investigation
  • Attend hearings and present evidence

Our guardianship attorney in Joplin can handle the sensitive nature of the petition and gather evidence on your behalf. We help to ensure that all information is correct and any pertinent details are included in your application for guardianship.
