A client’s elderly mother suffered a severe stroke. Unfortunately, she did not have a Health Care Proxy or Power of Attorney. As a result, she did not have anyone legally authorized to make medical or financial decisions for her.
The client had no choice but to seek to be appointed guardian by the court. We guided him through the court proceedings, and he was appointed guardian for his mother.
Takeaway: Basic planning documents, such as a Power of Attorney and a Health Care Proxy, can avoid lengthy and costly court proceedings.
