Guardianship Order Solicitors Irvine & Saltcoats

Guardianship

A Guardianship Order may be applied for via the courts, for an adult who lacks the capacity to make decisions relating to their own personal and financial affairs. Incapacity can mean for example, dementia or Alzheimer’s. It can also cover children or adults who have been born with a disability which prevents them from making decisions on their own behalf.

There are two types of Guardianship – Welfare and Financial.

Often applications are made by family members for a relative such as a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or child.

Legal Aid may be available to assist with this. The Office of the Public Guardian oversees Guardianship Orders.  If a full Guardianship Order is not needed, then other applications such as an Access to Funds or an Intervention Order can be made.
