Guardianship of Person and/or Estate

Guardianship of Person and/or Estate Service

Presently, Do It Yourself Documents, only offers a paralegal guardianship service for Washington State. We hope to add more in the near future.

A guardian is a person appointed by a court to manage the affairs of a person who is incapacitated. A guardian may be appointed to manage the financial affairs of a person at significant risk of harm because of a demonstrated inability to adequately manage property or financial affairs. A guardian may be appointed to make health care and other non-financial decisions for a person at significant risk of harm because of a demonstrated inability to adequately provide for nutrition, health, housing or physical safety.
