Guardianship and Conservatorship
Kentucky trust and estate attorney helping you protect your children
When devising your estate plan, the care of your children is likely your foremost concern. At Larmour Law Offices, PSC, we can provide you with sound advice and professional assistance with crucial decisions about the financial support, protection and guardianship of your children.
Choosing a guardian for your child
It is appropriate to select and name a guardian who will raise your children according to your parental philosophies. You should be aware that sometimes the court may reject a guardian who it finds is unwilling or unable to care for your child. We, therefore, suggest that you name an alternative guardian who can step into the role if your primary guardian choice is unavailable or rejected by the court. Our firm also recommends that you thoroughly discuss your decision with your chosen guardian to make sure the guardian is willing and prepared to accept the full responsibility of caring for your child as you wish.
Importance of a making a will
Having named a guardian for your children is especially important if you are a single parent or in case both parents die at the same time. If you have not named a guardian for your children, the court appoints the guardian for your children — and may make a very different decision about that than you would have. Assert your right to make such parenting decisions and have them enforced by drafting a will — and updating it if the guardian you have designated dies or becomes incapacitated.
Caring for an incapacitated adult
We can help you arrange for the care of an elderly parent or disabled adult child. We can guide you in choosing a conservator whom you can trust to manage the financial needs of your loved ones according to your wishes.
