It can be a worrying time when an elderly relative becomes physically or mentally infirm and unable to look after themselves. It imposes a strain on that person’s carer, and the strain can be all the greater where the carer is put in the position of having to cover their relative’s living and care expenses. Being appointed as a guardian allows you to manage the financial affairs of the person under guardianship, subject to strict legal safeguards which should give comfort to the rest of your family. We can assist with applications to the Royal Court for guardianship, and advise on related issues such as the sale of realty owned by the person under guardianship.
