Guardianships: Minors, Elderly, Disabled

Illinois guardianship of a minor or disabled adult is often required in situations such as the following:

  • in the event that minor children are awarded inheritances in their own names, when parents are deceased, disabled, or otherwise incapable of providing for their children
  • when grandparents become legal guardians of their grandchildren
  • when adults are disabled due to injury, illness, or old age

The need for guardianships can often be avoided through proper estate planning and naming of agents to act through powers of attorney.
