Guardianship or Power of Attorney
Many clients ask us whether they need a power of attorney or guardianship for their child when he or she turns 18. The answer depends on your child’s needs, and the attorneys at Batchis & Nestle can guide you through this choice. Guardianship is a legal process by which the Court appoints a guardian, often a parent, to make some or all decisions for your adult child. A power of attorney is a document in which your adult child gives consent for another person to make certain decisions on his or her behalf.
