Washington DC Guardianship Lawyers

About Court-Appointed Guardians

In Maryland, the court may appoint a guardian to manage the affairs of a person who is unable to do so on their own due to disability, illness, or age. Choosing a guardian is an essential part of estate planning, if you want to have control over who is appointed to manage your affairs or the affairs of your children.

With a considerable amount of guardianship experience in Maryland, we at DiPietro Law Group, PLLC are prepared to assist you in completing the necessary paperwork and procedures to designate a guardian for yourself or a dependent. Rather than leaving this decision to the court, work with a Washington DC guardianship attorney at our firm and make sure your wishes are observed.

To discuss the types of guardianship and what to do to choose and officially designate a guardian, call our office or contact us online.

Types of Guardianship in Maryland

There are different types of guardianships in Maryland:

  • Guardian of the Person of a Disabled Person
  • Guardian of the Person of a Minor
  • Guardian of the Property of a Disabled Person
  • Guardian of the Property of a Minor

The duties of a guardian may vary depending on the unique situation, but may include:

  • Making decisions regarding the healthcare, living situation, and education (for minors) of the ward (person in need of guardianship).
  • Providing food, shelter, clothing, and housing for the ward.
  • Driving the ward to and from school, medical appointments, etc.
  • Acting as a companion or providing other social activity and interaction for the ward.
  • Managing the ward’s money and property.
  • Keeping detailed records of the ward’s finances.

The person you designate as guardian will be required to complete a training program, which can be completed online, depending on the court. This will help the guardian understand his or her rights, duties, and responsibilities. A guardian has a legal obligation to act in the best interests of the person placed in his or her care.
