Guardianships

When an adult becomes unable to make decisions of their own, but they don’t have a power of attorney in place, an application for a Guardianship order can be made to the Sheriff Court.

These situations are often distressing and complex for the family or other adults involved, but you can rely on us to give you clear guidance to inform your decisions and minimise the stress for everyone involved. After an application has been granted, we’ll also be there to provide you with useful practical advice and assistance.
