Kansas City Guardianship Lawyer

Child guardianships can be voluntary or involuntary. In some cases, a parent may not be available to care for the child and asks a family member or friend to do so. In others, a family member or other interested party is concerned for the welfare of a child due to some type of unsafe living situation. In either situation, the non-parent needs to be appointed as a guardian by the court in order to make decisions for the child, get the child admitted to school and other considerations.

At the law firm of Kelly, Symonds & Reed, LLC, we represent family members and other interested persons who wish to become the guardian of a child. We also represent parents accused of being unfit who are at risk of losing their children. We understand the criteria the court uses when considering requests for guardianship, and we know the best approach to handling your case in pursuit of a favorable result.

Legal Guardians For Vulnerable Adults

Our lawyers also have experience handling adult guardianship matters. When a disabled or otherwise incapacitated person requires assistance managing his or her affairs, it is necessary for a guardian to be appointed.

Whether you are the person who is seeking to be appointed as a guardian or a person who wishes to challenge the assertion that you need a guardian, our attorneys are prepared to protect your interests. We will represent you at the competency hearing and present the strongest possible argument to support your position in the matter.
