Probate, Wills Trusts and Powers of Attorney

Disputes in probate court can arise over disputes relating to a will, trust, the administration of an estate or between heirs and beneficiaries.  Probate also involves guardianships, which are intended to promote and protect the well-being of an incapacitated person and his or her property.   Individuals may be incapacitated by reason of minority (under the age of 18) or because the individual is substantially without capacity to care for himself or herself or their estate.  There are two types of guardianships: temporary guardianships which can last no more than 90 days by statute and permanent guardianships which last until terminated by a court.  A guardian may be appointed over the person or over the person and the estate.  A guardian of the person has no control over the individual’s financial affairs or property.  Randall Wakefield has experience pursuing guardianships for those seeking to be appointed as guardians and defending guardianships when one is being sought improperly.  If you interested in pursuing a guardianship or if you have been served with a petition for guardianship, please contact us.  Mr. Wakefield also prepares wills, trusts and powers of attorney.
