Knowledgeable Guardianship Creation in Texas
Guardianship provides for the care of adults who are no longer capable of managing their affairs independently. Texas law provides for guardianship of a person as well as guardianship of an estate. The surviving parent of a minor child automatically becomes the guardian of the child, without the need for a guardianship proceeding, but he or she does not automatically become the guardian of the child's estate.
Because a guardian has significant legal powers, it is important to obtain legal advice from our dedicated San Antonio guardianship lawyers regarding the ramifications of guardianship.
