ARE YOU A SUCCESOR GUARDIAN? TALK TO US.
In Texas, a successor guardian is appointed upon the death of the prior guardian (provided that the guardianship is still needed). To become a successor guardian, you must file a pleading (called an application) with the probate court or county court depending on the county that the person under the guardianship lives in. Our firm can assist you if you desire to be appointed as successor guardian so that you may care for a loved one in need.
There are other reasons besides the death of the guardian that require the appointment of a successor guardian. For instance, the prior guardian may resign his or her position as guardian due to health reasons, change in location of the prior guardian or the person under a guardianship, or due to changes in family situations. Sometimes a court may also remove a guardian for cause. No matter the reason, we can assist you in your candidacy to become a successor guardian.
