Guardianship Proceedings in New York

Working with a Queens Probate Attorney

Guardianship may become necessary in the event that a parent loses the capacity to handle, raise or care for a child because of a mental complication, physical impairment or death. If you are seeking guardianship of a minor child, then you need to work with an attorney who fully understands New York guardianship, estate planning, and family law to ensure that you receive the best possible outcome for the person needing guardianship. At Pollak & Slepian, L.L.P., their Queens probate attorneys stand ready to provide outstanding representation to clients and work with them to achieve a favorable resolution to a guardianship proceeding.

According to New York laws, a person who is designated as a guardian of a minor child will be required to provide the child with all necessary medical care, personal care and emotional, financial and healthcare decisions based on the individual person's needs. While children are often the ones receiving the care of a guardian, mentally or physically incapacitated adults may also be assigned a guardian. Under Article 17 and 17A, a guardian can be appointed by a court if a child has lost both parents or if a person has been disabled from birth. Also, according to Article 81, a person can be assigned a guardian if they are considered incompetent as a result of a severe brain injury, coma or stroke.
