The Adult Guardianship And Child Guardianship Process In Texas

A guardian is usually designated because someone - a parentless child, a disabled adult - cannot take care of himself or herself. In Texas, an interested party can apply to be someone's guardian. A person can designate who they want to be a guardian if one becomes needed or the court can designate one.

If, for example, you want to become the guardian of a parent who suffers from dementia, you will need to present the court with detailed medical evidence.

If your application is approved, you will have to document all of the financial and medical decisions you make on behalf of your parent, including filing a yearly inventory of all decisions made. You will also need the court's permission to sell assets, making a lawyer essential. Our staff will file all the forms correctly and on time, gather the necessary evidence and represent you in court.
