Franklin County Guardianship Attorney
When loved ones have passed on or can no longer care for themselves, Tonya Coles guides Ohio residents and out of state clients through every step of the probate process, including:
- Estate administration — Also known as probate, the assets of a deceased person's estate are collected and distributed according to the decedent's will or state law if no will exists. The process involves filing of the estate, inventory and appraisal, and final accounting or closing.
- Guardianship — Someone who is deemed incapable of managing his or her own affairs needs protection for his or her estate. A guardianship is initiated by the court, and a guardian is appointed to make health decisions and manage finances. Only the court can terminate the agreement.
- Conservatorship — Similar to a guardianship, a conservatorship is initiated by an incapacitated individual who will be left vulnerable during a temporary illness. The person can resume his or her own care upon recovery.
