Case #19-0043316

Client seeks assistance obtaining guardianship over her 22-year-old great-grandson. Client’s great-grandson has been diagnosed with Jacob’s Syndrome, Autism Spectrum disorder, ADHD, and Schizophrenia. He has difficultly processing information and making decisions. Client feels that great-grandson is easily persuaded and taken advantage of by others. Client is seeking guardianship so that she can sign documents and make medical and financial decisions on his behalf. Client has been taking care of great-grandson and his two siblings since they were young children. Both of great-grandson’s parents are deceased, and his grandparents are not involved in his life. The guardianship is not expected to be contested, and a certified nurse practitioner is available to provide written testimony.
