Honolulu Lawyers To Help Protect Vulnerable Adults

When an illness or injury causes someone in our ‘Ohana to become unable to care for themselves as an adult, someone needs to step up as their legal guardian to defend the best interests of an incapacitated adult. When trying to navigate a new world of guardianship, it is common that you will have a lot of questions and concerns, but a skilled family law attorney can provide you with the guidance you need.

At Coates Frey & Hackett, AAL LLLC, we have more than 30 years of experience helping families protect their loved ones through guardianships. Our extensive skill and knowledge in this subject can help you quickly and effectively pursue the outcome that you and your loved one deserve.

The Guardian’s Responsibilities

Before you seek guardianship over a ward (the person you are looking after), it is important to have a thorough understanding of what will be expected of them. As the guardian of your loved one, you would have the responsibility of providing shelter, education (if necessary), food and medical care for your ward.

A guardianship is not a replacement for parenthood, but instead, it grants a person the legal authority to look after someone and make critical decisions for them. We can help you navigate the application process of guardianship to grant you the legal authority you need as soon as possible to care for an incapacitated adult. No matter what your family law needs are, our experienced team can be the advantage you deserve.
