Family members may find it difficult to navigate this unexpected and sudden situation; however, families in the Seattle area should understand that they have options available to them, helping them through this challenging time. Attorney Jennifer C Rydberg has worked closely with her clients, guiding them through these matters of guardianship and conservatorship.

There are various situations that might require guardianship. This often occurs when a child is named as a beneficiary in a litigation settlement, an adult family members are no longer able to care for themselves and do not have a power of attorney, a minor child lost a parent or a minor child receives an inheritance outside of a testamentary trust.

When a guardianship is established, it could be limited or full. In a limited guardianship, this may only impact personal affairs of the individual or health care directive. In comparison, a full guardianship, the named legal guardian oversees all aspects of the family member's life such as where they live, the medical care they will receive and will have control of their income and assets.
