Guardianship Attorney for Special Needs Adult Child

Beaufort, Summerville, and Charleston Guardianship Attorney

Guardianship attorney for adults with intellectual and development disabilities

When a person turns 18, he becomes an adult in the eyes of the law. This means, as the parent, you no longer have the legal right to make decisions on your adult child’s behalf. To keep the right, and protect your child, you will need to become his guardian and possibly conservator. 

We are here to help you through the process. Ideally,  the guardianship process should start a few months before your child turns 18 so that by the time your child’s 18th birthday occurs, the guardianship proceeding is close to being approved by the court. Please do not worry if your child is over 18 and you have not become his guardian. This is not uncommon. We are here to help you no matter your adult child’s age. 

Sometimes protecting your adult child in a less restrictive manner than a guardianship is possible. One common way is through a Power of Attorney. When you contact us, we will discuss all of your options and determine, as a team, the best course of action for your family.
