Understanding Adult Guardianships In Indiana

Adult guardianships are necessary in a variety of sensitive situations. Parents of teenagers who have special needs should establish guardianship before their child turns 18 to ensure continued care. Young adults with special needs, adults with dementia and mentally ill young adults may also require guardianship. If a spouse loses their capacity and moves to an assisted living facility, the other spouse may need to establish guardianship, especially in the event of a divorce.

Additionally, grandparents might need to obtain guardianship of a minor grandchild under certain circumstances. As your Indianapolis guardianship attorneys, we provide guidance and support through every step of this process, always prioritizing the least restrictive option for the ward.
