Guardianship may be involved in the probate of an estate; e.g. there is no will, mother dies, and she was the caretaker for a child with limitations. He is now an adult, and may require limited guardianship, and a resulting trust concerning his assets.
Probate matters are oftentimes more complicated than expected. Emotions often run high. It’s important to have the will or trust in place, with powers of attorney and health care proxies done. Being prepared is the best way to protect your loved ones when they will need it the most.
