Guardian Advocacy for persons with a developmental disability

by The 100 Companies

Guardian Advocacy is a process for families and caregivers of individuals with a developmental disability to obtain guardianship without declaring the individual incompetent.

Often a Guardian Advocate needs to be appointed when a person with a developmental disability turns 18 years old. Upon becoming an adult, parents no longer have the legal ability to make decisions for them.

The appointment of a Guardian Advocate allows the guardian to make decisions for the person with a developmental disability.

A Step-by-Step Process Guide for Becoming a Guardian Advocate is available at the Self-Help Center at the main courthouse and at CollierClerk.com.
