Texas Guardianship Law Books


Dealing with the death of a loved one presents a multitude of challenges. One of the challenges that family members often face is how to deal with the property of the loved one. Was a will left which sets out how the loved one wanted her property handled? Or, did your loved one not leave a will? Your answers to these questions will certainly impact how the loved one’s property will be handled. Call the Schwartz Law Firm, PLLC to schedule a free consultation to discuss the best course of action to handle these challenges.


A guardianship is a formal, legal process where a court appoints and monitors someone, called a Guardian, to make decisions for a person, called a ward, who does not have the capacity to make decisions. When a person is unable to provide food, clothing, or shelter, or to care for his or her own physical health, and to manage his or her own financial affairs due to a mental or physical condition, he or she may be found to be without capacity, or “incapacitated.” The purpose of guardianship is to protect persons from abuse, neglect, including self-neglect, and exploitation, and to provide for their care and the appropriate management of their property. Call the Schwartz Law Firm, PLLC and schedule a free consultation to discuss whether a guardianship is an option to be considered in caring for your loved one.
