Mr. Maggiore represents clients who wish to apply for guardianship of an individual due to mental illness, dementia, traumatic brain injuries, or any other condition which renders an individual temporarily or permanently incapacitated as specified in the Texas Probate Code.

There are two types of guardianship in Texas: guardianship of the person and guardianship of the estate. Guardianship of the person gives the guardian the right to make decisions affecting the wards day-to-day life, including medical care (there are some limitations and court oversight imposed by statute). A guardianship of the estate gives the guardian control over the ward’s financial matters subject to court oversight and applicable statutes.

Depending on your situation and the situation of the proposed ward (the person you seek guardianship of), one or both of these types of guardianship may be appropriate and/or required. A guardian is required to post a bond set by the court, with limited exceptions for governmental organizations and certain business entities. A person is disqualified from serving as a guardian for various reasons including owing money to the ward or having a felony conviction in any state.

To speak with Mr. Maggiore about your guardianship needs, please call him at 713.239.3347.
