Guardianship

A guardianship can be a great thing, like an adoption. It can provide protection to a vulnerable adult, or provide a family to a child. When family members disagree, it can be as difficult as a divorce, but with more than 2 sides to every issue. Good legal assistance can make a big difference in both the outcome and how traumatic the process is. Individuals who feel comfortable doing it can handle these cases on their own provided the evidentiary issues aren't too difficult. Our office can handle the whole matter, or we can advise on an hourly basis.

We had a tough adoption that seemed to drag on with the state. The staff at Otterson Law were tremendously knowledgeable and a huge help to us. The adoption portion was all done quickly and we were very pleased with with their work. We will be using them in the future. Sima T.

Otterson Law & Mediation just finished the adoption of my daughter, Melissa. They did it during COVID and around all the state closures. I was happy with the communication and also with the timeliness of getting it finished. Reklats E.

Otterson Law office handled the adoptions of my niece and nephew in Alaska. They did a great job addressing all of the concerns and making sure that things were handled well. I am glad to have my niece and nephew in our family thanks to them. Trevor B.
