Making Decisions For and Protecting Your Loved One
Guardianship of an Adult
When a loved one becomes mentally or physically incapacitated and can no longer care for himself or herself, you may need an experienced lawyer to help you establish legal guardianship. Typically, the responsibility to care for a family member falls on a parent or child; Mr. Thrasher understands, personally and professionally, how stressful and difficult this decision can be.
In Texas, guardianship is handled by the probate court. If well-drafted durable & medical power of attorneys were created prior to the ward's incapacitation, they may enable you to avoid having to establish guardianship of a loved one. However, if those documents were not created prior, establishing legal guardianship will enable you to make decisions for an incapacitated family member, including health/medical decisions and financial decisions.

Guardianship of a Child
When a child's parents are deceased or cannot care for the child, often the grandparents or other family members need to establish guardianship. The child's legal guardian will make decisions for the child regarding health care, education, custody and other important matters.
