Money Saving Alternatives to Guardianship

Avoid the guardianship process, and a costly contested dispute, with a plan made in advance for incapacity caused by an illness, such as dementia or Alzheimer’s. 

Upon receiving the diagnosis for yourself or a loved one, contact Melissa immediately to help you put these simple and inexpensive documents into place:

  • will
  • power of attorney
  • advanced medical directive

Melissa can help you find other alternatives to guardianship such as setting up a surrogate decision maker to advocate and sign your important papers for you.
