If I am named as a guardian, what help should I seek?

No sensible person would engage "just anyone" to fill a loved one's tooth or remove an appendix. Likewise, a guardian should be careful in taking advice regarding his or her duties to the ward. A lawyer can help you understand and fulfill your legal duties as a guardian, and avoid mistakes or oversights that could result in serious harm to your ward or his or her family. Ohio's laws regarding the appointment and conduct of guardians are not simple. Understanding and complying with them calls for professional expertise.
