If you currently care for anyone, whether they are your own children or an adult who needs assistance, they need to be a part of your estate plan. Failure to do so could leave the decision about who will care for them in the hands of courts here in Pennsylvania, which may not listen to your or their wishes.
At the Quinn Law Firm, we have an experienced team of estate planning and administration and family law attorneys that can walk you through everything involved with naming a guardian for your loved one. We understand the emotional aspect of these decisions, and we will help you make the choices that work best for your family.
Protecting You And Your Loved Ones
If you have children, you will need to think about naming a guardian to take care of them until they turn 18. If you have a child with special needs who will require ongoing care and financial help beyond the age of 18, you will also need to consider who will be able to effectively care for them.
Our firm also represents guardians in this process. If you wish to adopt the children you are now caring for, we can walk you through the adoption process from start to finish. While you will typically work with one attorney, we have a team with broad experience in many different practice areas who can take a big-picture view of your case to ensure your and your adoptees’ interests are addressed.
