Arkansas Guardianship Lawyers Create Stability for Children

Little Rock firm establishes legal protections when parents are unable to provide care

To a child, nothing is more important than a loving, caring and capable parent. Unfortunately, sometimes legal intervention is needed to give a young person the best chance to grow up in a safe, supportive environment. From our office in Little Rock, Worsham Law Firm, P.A. handles legal guardianship matters when parents are unable to care for their children due to death, disability, illness, substance abuse, violent behavior or some other factor that prevents them from fulfilling their responsibilities. Our background in this area helps clients get the detailed and accurate information they need if they wish to take on this profound responsibility.

Compassionate attorneys pursue orders to help young people and disabled adults

The establishment of guardianships typically involves a complex legal process that includes multiple hearings and court appearances, so it’s important to have skilled family law counsel. A significant percentage of our practice centers on guardianship law, and we have helped numerous adults obtain the legal rights required to provide young people with a safe and nurturing home. To get you started, we can discuss custody rights, procedural requirements, background checks and costs in a free initial consultation. Should you choose to move forward, our firm can take you through the steps associated with:

  • Legal guardianship — Guardianship of the person gives a qualified adult the authority to make legal decisions on a child’s behalf. This also covers traditional parental responsibilities such as the ability to decide a child’s medical treatment, education and religious upbringing.
  • Financial guardianship — When a child is involved, guardianship of the estate is usually granted along with guardianship of the person. It gives the guardian power over the ward’s financial assets until they reach adulthood.
  • Guardianship for disabled adults — We also represent family members who believe that a disabled adult is too incapacitated to make appropriate decisions regarding their legal and financial affairs. Sometimes, the disabled person might oppose well-meaning attempts to create a guardianship. Our accomplished lawyers work to achieve a favorable resolution while respecting each party’s rights and dignity.

In addition to establishing guardianships for children and disabled adults, we assist loved ones in creating guardianships for elderly family members who have become unable to care for themselves or manage their financial affairs.
