Guardianship in Arapahoe County

Centennial Estate Planning Attorney

Establishing a guardianship in Colorado and handling the processes involved may be a rather complex and overwhelming situation. A guardianship occurs when an adult becomes incapacitated and can no longer take care of oneself or when the parent(s) can no longer take care of their minor child. A guardian is then appointed by the court to take over responsibility of and care for the ward (the incapacitated individual or minor child). At The Law Office of Steven R. Owens, P.C., our legal team is determined to provide our clients with the legal representation needed to make the process go as smooth and as quick as possible.

From initially filing the guardianship petition to the court process involved, up to the final appointment of the guardian, our estate planning firm will be with you every step of the way. There are three types of guardianships available through Colorado courts: emergency, limited, and unlimited. Emergency guardians step in when the ward's life, safety, and welfare are at stake. Limited guardians have a limited amount of responsibility when acting on the ward's behalf while the unlimited guardian is given complete decision-making power. It is always important that the guardian does not take advantage of his or her power.
