Guardianship Law Attorney Durham, North Carolina

North Carolina Guardianship and Alternatives to Guardianship


Guardianship and powers of attorney are used to assist people who cannot care for themselves. If effective powers of attorney are in place, there may be no need for guardianship. Powers of attorney are also helpful if a person only needs a little assistance managing their affairs and is able to delegate that responsibility to someone else.

We provide the following services:

  • Establishing guardianship for disabled adults or minor children
  • Changing the guardian or the type of guardianship
  • Restoring incompetent adults to competency
  • Preparing powers of attorney
  • Providing guardianship defense
  • Establishing ancillary guardianship to manage a ward's property
  • Acting as the Resident Process Agent for out of state guardians
