If your loved one is unable to care for or make decisions for themselves, the Guardianship process can help ensure their wellbeing and protection. A legally appointed guardian helps manage the personal and financial affairs of a minor, incapacitated adult, or individual struggling with mental health issues according to their best interest. Norton Estate Planning provides you peace of mind knowing that your loved ones will be cared for according to their wishes if they can no longer do so themselves.

Guardianship Should Be...


Guardianship can be confusing. From our initial consultation through the entire legal process, we ensure that all parties are well-informed and in-the-know.


Guardianship can be a difficult process. We bring all parties together to ensure alignment and cooperation as we work together to pursue a solution that's in the best interest of the guarded individual.


Guardianship should always be centered around the welfare of the guarded individual. We ensure that all parties are acting in the individual's best interest at very step of the process.

The Bottom Line

Our Guardianship services are right for…

Our Process

Guardianship Consultation
Guardianship doesn’t have to be a confusing process.
During this free consultation, we’ll discuss your individual needs and help you understand the Guardianship process to determine if our firm would be a good fit for your needs.
We help you through all the formalities.
During a hearing, we will meet with a judge for approximately 30 minutes to go through the formal steps of appointing the guardian. On average, it takes 30-40 days to receive a hearing date with a judge.
Let’s make sure everything is in order.
After the hearing, we’ll review the authority of the court-appointed guardian, the biennial duties required under the law, and provide instructions on proper financial management and recordkeeping.
Ongoing Support
We are always here for you.
Once your guardianship process is complete, we’ll always be here to help you with any questions you have or support you need.

I scheduled a consultation to discuss estate planning for a family member. Attorney Norton was very helpful and knowledgeable. She shared additional resources and support. I now have a plan to move forward. I appreciate her attention to detail, her deep knowledge of the subject matter, and her support. I also found the preparation videos extremely helpful. Many Thanks.

Attorney Jennifer Norton was and is GOD sent. She willingly helped me help a Senior Citizen who needed urgent advice, directions, and clarity on completing her Trust. She was very, very knowledgeable about every question I had. What I appreciated most was her patience with my lack of knowledge on all my legal questions. I strongly recommend Attorney Jennifer Norton for all your legal concerns especially those concerning Senior Citizens. She is honest and has compassion for Senior Citizens. Her communication style is that of teaching, informing, and helping. If you need a great Attorney for a Senior Citizen in your family or your friends call Attorney Jennifer Norton.

I had questions about a trust made years ago. The first attorney I talked to overcomplicated it. Jennifer answered my questions in 15 minutes and gave me good guidance on the process when the time comes. Very helpful!

I reached out to Norton Estate Planning to get some advice on a few things regarding my mom. I was contacted via email and had an appointment set up immediately. I was advised of a 30 minute FREE consultation. I was contacted by Jennifer and she informed me of the necessary steps to take and that I did not need an attorney for that. Impressed is not even a strong enough word for the professional service that I received! She’s literally God sent! I would definitely recommend her for your planning needs! Thank you so much Jennifer!
