WHAT IS GUARDIANSHIP?:

Guardianship, also, referred to as conservatorship, is a legal process, utilized when a person can no longer make or communicate safe or sound decisions about his/her person and/or property or has become susceptible to fraud or undue influence. Because establishing a guardianship may remove considerable rights from an individual, it should only be considered after alternatives to guardianship have proven ineffective or are unavailable.

WHEN IS GUARDIANSHIP NEEDED?:

Normally, parents have the legal right to make decisions for their children, and adults have the legal right to make decisions for themselves. Sometimes this is not possible, and someone else needs to step in to take care of a child or an adult.

GENERAL GUARDIANSHIP:

A general guardianship is of the ward and/or all of the ward’s property in Oklahoma.

LIMITED GUARDIANSHIP:

Limited guardianship has limited powers over the ward and/or the ward’s property.

SPECIAL GUARDIANSHIP:

Special guardianship is when a guardian is appointed for an emergency purpose and usually lasts for no more than 10 days.

“My grandfather had married a woman and several months after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. After the diagnoses, she filed for divorce and believed she was entitled to my grandfather’s savings and benefits. Mr. Buckley represented him in the divorce and made sure my grandfather’s finances were safe and secure. Mr. Buckley did an amazing job, she received nothing and my grandfather’s savings are being used for his medical care. Mr. Buckley’s rates were very reasonable and he remained in contact with the family, letting us know exactly what was happening in the case and how he was handling matters. Thank you, Mr. Buckley!”

“I will always appreciate the type of person who can do a great job while also cutting through the red tape and making things seem simple to me. There were times that I doubted Mr. Buckley because he seemed so confident and I was terrified. But things worked out exactly the way that he said they would and I’ve never felt better represented.”
