Helping Clients Protect Loved Ones In Guardianship Matters

New York code Article 81 establishes proceedings for the appointment of a guardian for the personal needs or property management of an incapacitated person. A guardianship allows a person to care for another who is unable to care for or protect himself or herself.

At the Jackson Heights Law Office of Schachter, P.C., we help clients throughout New York City establish guardianships to protect their loved ones. Queens guardianship lawyer David B. Schachter has more than 30 years of experience serving clients.

Setting Up Guardianships For Personal Needs Or Property Management

Guardianships function by giving another person the power to act on behalf of an incapacitated child or adult while the person is unable to do so on his or her own. A guardian can be the petitioner, another family member or a state representative.

At the Law Office of Schachter, P.C., we work closely with the family doctor or social worker as well as the court-appointed evaluator to determine who the guardian should be. We guide the petitioner in providing necessary information to the court and interested parties while keeping private matters private.
