A birth defect can lead to lifelong physical and mental disabilities. If you are a parent with a disabled child who is about to turn 18, you may be able to continue to raise and protect your child through guardianship. By becoming a guardian over your child, you will be able to continue to provide the care he or she needs into adulthood.
At The Law Office of Laura Coorpender Ramirez, PLLC, we help parents and stepparents of disabled children apply for guardianship of the person as their child becomes a legal adult. We are dedicated to providing personalized service and will work with you to help you achieve your goals for your family.
We have dedicated our legal practice to helping individuals and families with guardianship issues in Denton County. Contact our guardianship law firm to speak with a birth defect guardianship attorney serving the Dallas area.
If your disabled child is nearing 18 and you are concerned about his or her ability to make healthy decisions for the future, we can help you become a guardian. In Texas, guardians are appointed when an adult is substantially unable to provide food, clothing or shelter for himself or herself, to care for his or her own physical health, or to manage his or her financial affairs.
We represent clients with disabled children suffering from a wide range of birth defects, including:
To determine if your child needs a guardian, have your family doctor evaluate your child. After your doctor has found a need for guardianship, we will work with you to apply for guardianship and represent you from the beginning to the end of the process. We can also help you modify or terminate the guardianship if your child becomes more independent in the future.
