Cleveland, Ohio, Child Guardianship Lawyer
Over time, elderly individuals may begin to lose mental or physical capabilities, requiring more attention and assistance from caregivers, including children and family members. In addition to day-to-day needs, the individual may no longer be equipped to make important decisions on his or her behalf. It becomes necessary for family members to intervene and become guardian or conservator of the individual, taking responsibility for these decisions and the person’s care. Guardianships are often granted to adults taking over parenting duties of minors and children. Often there is an issue where the parents have become unfit to provide the level of care and parenting that the children need. Because of this, family members or close friends may step in to become guardians of the children and offer the care needed. This is a step short of adoption, but allows the adult to make legal, medical and educational decisions for the child. Attorney Hull helps families understand the steps that must be taken to care for the loved one, whether elderly or a minor. He works closely with each client to understand the needs of all involved and will advocate closely to ensure that those needs are met through appropriate arrangements.
