Article 81 Guardianships In New York

Under New York law, an Article 81 Guardianship is a proceeding that appoints a third party to have decision-making authority over personal and financial details of an incapacitated person's life.

Guardians are typically close family members or friends of the disabled person. A guardian can be given authority over matters such as:

  • Making financial transactions
  • Managing bank accounts
  • Managing investments
  • Routine medical treatment

I am here to explain the guardianship process to you and help you understand the rights and responsibilities you will have as a guardian. I will handle all of the paperwork with the utmost care and attention to detail.
