Guardianship Attorney in Tulsa, OK
Perhaps the only thing more tragic than a child being removed from his or her parents are the consequences of leaving a child with improper care. At Catherine M Caldwell-Caves Attorney at Law, I offer Tulsa, OK guardianship attorney services for all types of guardianship law cases, both big and small.
Guardianship is a formal court decision that removes children from their parents and gives legal custody to a non-parent, such as a grandparent, other family members or a close friend. This may occur if the parents cannot provide safe housing for a child due to a number of factors, including financial hardship, drug abuse, and domestic violence. A guardianship attorney may file for a guardianship law proceeding if a parent is unavailable to care for a child due to serious illness, incarceration, or death.
Guardianships may also be granted for adults who are unable to make sound decisions or are physically unable to take care of themselves. There are various signs that an adult may have failing mental faculties, and they include:
• Making Questionable Life Choices—Has the person started buying strange things, entering lots of contests, or begun drinking and gambling?
• Questionable Self-Care—Is the person losing weight, failing to shower, or not wearing clean clothes anymore?
• Finance Management—Is the person forgetting to pay bills, paying exorbitant prices for everyday things, or writing checks to strangers?
• Disinterest—Is the person no longer interested in hobbies and activities that they used to enjoy?
If someone in your life needs the legal protection of a guardian, you need a guardianship attorney who will help you work your way through the court system. Call Catherine M Caldwell-Caves Attorney at Law, and I will return calls no matter what time of day to give you the assistance you need.
