Guardianship

In Wisconsin, a parent cannot simply “sign over” legal custody of a minor child or an incapacitated adult. Guardianship is a specific kind of legal status between a caregiver and a ward. Becoming a legal guardian allows a caregiver to make legal decisions and sign paperwork, such as school forms or medical authorizations. Attorney Poletti can answer your questions and help you obtain guardianship of a minor or an adult as necessary.
