Protecting Your Family

It is important for family members to consider what would happen to the rest of the family if they were unable to continue providing care and making critical decisions. Accidents and unexpected events happen, however, and you need to be proactive in preparing for the possible event that you are no longer available to make decisions for your family.

At Eden Rafferty, we can help you with a range of different guardianship options. With more than eight decades of combined legal experience and an in-depth understanding of the various guardianship options available to you, our Worcester guardianship attorneyswill help you establish a guardianship that will meet your needs.

A guardianship is more than a legal document; it is something you establish to protect your family members for years to come. It is a personal matter with far-reaching ramifications.

We can help you establish a number of different types of guardianships:

  • Guardianships of minor children: A guardianship of a minor is a legal instrument by which you can establish an agent with the authority to make all of the important decisions for your minor child in the event that you can no longer make those decisions.
  • Guardianships of adults: An adult guardianship is similar to a child guardianship, but it is meant to establish an agent to make decisions for an adult who lacks capacity to make those decisions alone. These are especially useful for children with special needs, who lack the capacity to make personal decisions.
  • Elder guardianships: This is an instrument that can be used to establish a guardian for a parent who might be losing capacity to make personal decisions.
