An Overview of Guardianship In New York
Created on April 04, 2017
In the field of elder law, we strive as practitioners to encourage our clients to execute advance-planning documents necessary to appoint trusted persons to act as fiduciaries in the event that our clients become incapacitated. But there is nonetheless a growing population of persons who, through a catastrophic event or through an age-related cognitive decline, have become too incapacitated to make decisions for themselves and have not appointed anyone to act on their behalf, or have appointed someone who is abusing their role.
