Guardianship | Attorney in Cary NC
The guardian should be notified at the time guardianship is specified that he or she was chosen to take care of the ward so there is no confusion or surprise should it come to fruition.
Someone who is asked to be the guardian of a ward should consider these questions before agreeing to accept to ensure that it is the right decision for them.
- Am I ready to take on the full responsibility of another person?
- What is our relationship like now? How will it change?
- Can I afford to take care of the ward?
- Does he have finances to cover his living costs? If so, can I manage the finances appropriately?
- Do I have the time and energy to take care of the ward in the best way?
- How will my spouse and/or children feel?
Becoming a legal guardian for a ward is an important responsibility that should not be taken lightly. Someone considering naming a guardian should take an honest assessment of the situation so that the best interests of the ward will be represented.
