In some situations, if performed timely, basic special needs planning, utilizing advanced directives with a basic will and/or trust, can accomplish short and long term goals in a relatively quick and cost effective manner. In more complex situations, court involvement and the filing of a guardianship proceeding may be required. A court appointed guardian is granted the authority to manage the affairs of an individual who has become incapacitated by injury, illness or age for the purpose of making personal, legal, and/or financial decisions for the incapacitated.
