Guardianship Practice


Establishing a Guardian in Case of Incapacity


Know That Your Loved Ones Are Always in Good Hands

There are situations where a guardian has to be established to look after a person, his property, or both. In Texas, this may occur when a child is under the age of 18 and considered a minor or in case of an adult who is incapacitated, either because of an injury, a medical condition, age, or for some other reason.

While many of these situations can be handled through proper estate planning, it is sometimes necessary to resort to a formal court proceeding to name someone to be the guardian of that person.

Judith P. Kenney & Associates can assist you in addressing these situations by resorting to guardianship proceedings if other less restrictive methods are not available or sufficient. Attorneys in our firm are routinely appointed by all three probate courts in Dallas County as well as the probate courts in Collin County and Denton County to serve as attorney ad litem and as guardian ad litem.
