Probate And Guardianship
Don’t Allow The Complexities Of Probate And Guardianship To Overwhelm You
Formalizing a matter of guardianship so that a child can properly be cared for can be overwhelming and frustrating if handled without the experience and know-how it deserves. At Thomas E. Scifres, we understand the stress and uncertainty one may have when dealing with such issues. Because of this, we pride ourselves on educating our clients beyond a cursory understanding of their situation.
A child being cared for by someone other than his or her biological parents is not uncommon. While such arrangements often do not present major roadblocks, there can be difficulty when medical, educational or legal issues arise and authorities are allowed to speak only with the biological parents. If the best interest of the child is the primary focus of the guardian in such situations, we are ready to help.
In a similar way, planning for the future with older relatives can sometimes be an overwhelming task. With so many moving parts to any one person’s life, trying to make sense of everything alone can lead to improper and detrimental decisions with far-reaching consequences.
We’re With You Every Step Of The Way

We speak to those issues and look for creative solutions to ease the transition for our clients and their families.
