Guardianship Proceedings In Arkansas
When parents are unable to take care of a child properly, or when that child becomes the victim of child neglect or abuse, guardianship may be an option to help protect the child and improve his or her living situation.
At Robertson, Oswalt & Associates, we can help. At our four office locations in Little Rock, Heber Springs, Conway and Benton, Arkansas, we represent family members — including parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles — in guardianship proceedings.
Contested Guardianship Proceedings
Often these proceedings run smoothly and all involved are in agreement about the best interests of the child. This is not always the case. When guardianships are contested, our attorneys are well-prepared to advocate forcefully for our clients. We use in-depth knowledge and experience to help our clients achieve the best possible results.
We have experience representing clients in guardianship proceedings involving the Department of Human Services (DHS). If children are in state custody, grandparents or other relatives may sometimes ask to have the children placed in their homes instead of foster homes.
We also help our clients create guardianships for incapacitated adults, like the elderly or those who suffer from mental illness. When a loved one requires legal and physical guidance for their own safety, a guardianship can be the best way to protect them.
