Autism spectrum disorder can range from relatively mild conditions, such as Asperger's syndrome, to severe cases of autism. If your child's autism impacts his or her ability to make adult decisions, a guardianship may be the solution your family needs to continue to care for your child.
If your autistic child is turning 18 and needs a guardian, we can help you. At The Law Office of Laura Coorpender Ramirez, PLLC, we help families with physically and mentally disabled children seek guardianships of the person in Denton County, Texas, and can help you provide protection and care into the future.
Contact our guardianship law firm to speak with a Denton County lawyer about guardianship of an adult child with autism. We provide our clients with dedicated legal counsel and personal service.
Not all autistic children need guardians when they turn 18. However, if your child is unable to make decisions about his or her life, a guardianship can help you protect and raise your child throughout his or her adulthood.
At our firm, we help parents and stepparents of autistic children apply for guardianship and determine which powers the guardian will have and which powers the ward will retain, including:
We can also help you modify or terminate guardianship in the future. If your child becomes more independent and is ready to make adult decisions without your guidance, we will petition the court to change the guardianship.
