Why Is Obtaining Guardianship So Complicated?

For many grandparents, aunts and uncles and extended family members, it seems as if obtaining guardianship of a minor-aged relative should be a simple matter for the Texas courts to decide. In this blog update, we will discuss some of the issues that make a successful guardianship petition more complicated than many people realize under Texas law.

Responsibilities and limitations of adult guardianship

A person who has been appointed by a Texas court to be an adult's guardian will be responsible for handling many aspects of the ward's daily life. Some of these responsibilities include making sure the ward's bills are paid on time, handling the ward's finances and maintaining the value of the ward's assets as much as possible.
