Your Guardianship And Adoption Ally
The legal establishments of guardianship and adoption are life-changing propositions. There are significant responsibilities and rights associated with both of these legal statuses. Carrie K. Stiller, Attorney at Law, in New Albany has 20 years of experience legally recognizing families through adoption and guardianship.
Advocating For Guardianship
Our firm can help you navigate complex legal issues involving guardianship matters. You may feel that the care of your grandkids or a young family member is enough to establish guardianship rights. However, if you do not have an official designation, your interests in the child’s upbringing will not be legally protected. Legal guardianship status can:
- Prevent a biological parent from taking the children back
- Prevent a parent from cutting the child’s contact with you
- Give a child stability when parents are incarcerated or abuse substances
Delivering De Facto Evidence
In the state of Indiana, there is a statute for de facto custody that can give you the right to request guardianship. If you have cared for a child for a year or more and the child has bonded with you, we can work with you to develop a case strategy with your evidence of caretaking.
Arranging Adult Guardianship
Establishing guardianship for a disabled or ill adult family member gives you the authority to manage both the care and finances of the individual. This can make a vast difference in the adult’s quality of life. Our firm can help you through the process of arranging this type of protection.
