Appointing A Guardian For A Disabled Adult
This guardianship proceeding may apply to a physically or mentally disabled person over 18 (a special needs child) or older or may apply to an elderly person who is not competent to care for himself or herself. This is called guardianship of a disabled adult. The guardian may be of the person or of the estate or both person and estate. The court-appointed guardian of the persons is able to make all medical decisions and have access to all records for the disabled person. The guardian of the estate is able to manage the person’s financial decisions, Social Security benefits and day-to-day transactions.
These proceedings also take place in the probate court and authority is through Letters of Office issued by the court. Attorney Cellucci has and can help with Guardianships for Disabled Adults in all four counties, DuPage, Will, Kane and Kendall.
