A Healthcare Power of Attorney and a General and Durable Power of Attorney can help avoid the need for guardianships in the court system. By pre-planning who will make decisions for you if you are declared to be incapacitated or incompetent, it avoids the need for attorney fees and guardian ad litem involvement in front of a judge. These documents are usually the least expensive documents through an attorney’s office and every competent adult over the age of eighteen should have them. One of the exceptions is developmentally disabled children who will need guardianships as they turn eighteen years of age. It is important to hire an attorney to help you through the guardianship process so that the order is drafted properly. The Pruitt Law Offices S.C. can handle these matters for you.
