Wheaton, Illinois, Guardianship Lawyer

Serving Seniors and Their Families in Chicago's Western Suburbs

Legal guardianship is one of several legal options available to family members concerned about someone's potential mental incompetence. If effective disability plans have not been implemented, a concerned party can petition the probate court to appoint a guardian to manage the affairs of a parent or spouse. If Alzheimer's or another form of mental illness has led to the inability of a loved one to handle their personal or financial affairs, call Illinois guardianship lawyer Carol A. Nolan.

Although guardianship is more expensive than using a power of attorney, it has the benefit of court oversight and review of expenditures. The probate court also provides a ready forum to resolve disputes over the handling of the estate.

Probate guardianship proceedings are public matters. This can be an issue in cases when the disabled person is a business owner or public figure. For families who want to avoid the need for guardianship, disability planning is crucial. A power of attorney or revocable living trust can address many of the needs of a disabled family member.

To arrange an effective financial plan for an elderly family member or disabled adult, please call Carol Nolan at 630-668-6600 to arrange a consultation.
