Long Island Guardianship Lawyers

A guardianship can protect the health and financial well-being of a loved one. At the Elder Law & Special Needs Practice of Felicia Pasculli, Esq., we provide representation on guardianship issues for clients in Bay Shore, Long Island and other areas of New York.

Guardianships control the personal and financial affairs of incapacitated adults and disabled children. Frequently, guardianships are set up to address health issues elderly parents may suffer, including stroke, dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

Guardianships for Children With Special Needs

For parents of children with autism or other developmental disabilities, a guardianship encompasses financial and personal decision-making authority for children reaching the age of majority. It can be beneficial to set up guardianship plans before children reach the age of 18 since at that age a parent no longer has the legal ability to make decisions for a child, whether or not the child is disabled.

At our law firm, we take a personal approach for guardianships and other family law issues. From the start, we take the time to learn the details about a client and are sensitive to the entire family's concerns. It is our goal to address any potential conflict a guardianship could create between family members. A contested guardianship can be an unpleasant experience and is often best avoided.

Powers of attorney or health care proxies are other legal ways to do advance planning. Our lawyers are skilled at them all and can identify solutions that appropriately address your circumstances and family dynamics.
