Securing guardianship of another person
If your loved one can no longer manage his or her own affairs due to illness or disability, you may want to seek a legal guardianship. The protected person is then known as a ward. Maryland guardianship law requires you to demonstrate that the ward is in need of assistance. Other interested parties may attend the guardianship hearing and:
- Refute the ward’s need for guardianship
- Challenge your fitness to be the guardian
- Ask to be appointed as the guardian instead of you
You need a guardianship litigation attorney to represent your interests and those of the ward you seek to protect. George E. Meng and Sierra B. Mitchell can fight for your position and help you take care of your loved one properly.
Removing a guardianship through litigation
You may be dissatisfied with the appointment of a guardian over your loved one. Another family member may have received guardian status, or the state may have appointed a public guardian in the belief that no family members were available. Reasons that you might wish to remove such a guardian include:
- The ward does not require a guardian.
- The guardian’s conduct is not in the ward’s best interests.
- You believe that you are better suited to act as guardian.
Removing a guardian is complicated, and requires the assistance of an experienced attorney. George E. Meng and Sierra B. Mitchell have extensive experience with guardianships and helping people do what is best for their loved ones.
