Article 81 Guardianship

An Article 81 Guardianship is typically used to set up guardianship for individuals, including elders, with cognitive or functional limitations that are likely to cause them financial or personal harm. The goal of Article 81 Guardianship is to appoint a guardian who will be given the legal power to act on behalf of a person with cognitive limitations.

The attorneys at Fratello Law have broad experience setting up Article 81 Guardianships for those with cognitive limitations and their guardians. Fill out our contact form to get in touch with one of our dedicated Smithtown elder law attorneys.
