Guardian Ad Litem Services During Probate

A probate court handles not only issues of estates and Trusts but also the issues of incapacitated adults and minor children. These vulnerable clients may require the help of skilled legal representatives to ensure that their interests are protected in court proceedings. One option to represent the best interests of an incapacitated adult or a child is by the court appointment of a Guardian ad Litem (GAL).

A judge, family members, the court, or other professionals can nominate a qualified attorney such as Marco Chayet to act as Guardian ad Litem for an incapacitated person or minor. The appointment of a Guardian ad Litem and who will serve as a Guardian ad Litem is always at the discretion of the courts of jurisdiction.

The law office of Chayet & Danzo, LLC, provides Guardian ad Litem services for both adults and minors. We act as a Guardian ad Litem in capacity hearings, in divorce proceedings, settling of personal injury claims, and in other probate matters, such as guardianships and conservatorships. Our Denver Guardian ad Litem lawyers have extensive experience with clients with incapacity, disabilities and mental health issues.

We invite you to contact our office to learn more about the full range of services we can provide. Families often seek our GAL services after consulting us on elder law matters and long-term care planning.

What A Guardian Ad Litem Does

People who have diminished capacity of any scope do not lose their right to due process of law; however, they may not be able to advocate for themselves or what is in their best interest. The job of the Guardian ad Litem is to advocate for the best interest of the allegedly incapacitated person. As a GAL, we follow the court order appointing us as the Guardian ad Litem and will gather all relevant information, interview the parties involved, and then will advocate in court for the course of action that protects and promotes the best interest of the client.

We provide Guardian ad Litem services in the context of:
