Guardianship petitions are necessary to secure your interests
When a child is neglected or in a dangerous situation, an adult who has the child’s best interests in mind wants to remove them from that situation ASAP. But without filing the proper paperwork, the child often goes right back into the past situation.
Other times, a child is left with an inheritance, and an adult is needed to tend to their estate.
We have experience with both guardianships of children and property and can help protect the child, their interests, and help you do the right thing.
Guardianship of the person
Sometimes a child needs to be taken out of a dangerous situation, and this needs to be done quickly. As your attorneys, we understand the need for urgency, and the need to have a complete court order to keep the child safe.
In some cases, a parent may have died, leaving a child with no legal caretaker or guardian. Even if the parent has asked you to care for their child, you still need to submit a guardianship petition to protect the rights of both you and the child.
The child’s well-being is of utmost importance, and we are committed to ensuring that you obtain custody of the child to keep them protected and well looked after.
Guardianship of the estate
Other times, a child possesses significant property that must be protected by a responsible adult who has the child’s best interests in mind. Often, sadly, the parents are not interested in the child’s future and financial well-being. An outside guardian is necessary to have legal authority of the child’s estate, so that the child’s interests can be looked after.

Our Guardianship Attorneys
Mr. Collins was an exceptional attorney and treated our small issue as extremely important. We were impressed with his expertise, communication, and understanding. He drove a successful resolution and I would definitely recommend this firm.
I spoke to Mr Ervin over phone about some issues with my lease and he answered all questions very well to the point. Thanks Mr Ervin.
I spoke with Shawn Ervin over the phone about a legal matter that I was going through. He answered all my questions and said he would do additional research and email me what he found. Within an hour of our phone conversation he emailed me more information about the topic and a step by step procedure on what forms I need to file with the court and sheriff.
This is a great business, Matthew handled my case and he was awesome. He was easy for me to reach and on the rare occasion I wasn’t able to reach him, he returned my calls and emails right away. He was great at explaining my situation and options to me in a way that I could understand. Would recommend to anyone in search of their services.
I highly recommend Alexander Collins as an attorney. I work out of town and am not home much. He was very accommodating of my hectic schedule. I feel he went above and beyond in helping with my case. I have never been to court before and did not know what to expect. Alex made the process easy and I got a favorable outcome. I am very happy with the job he did.
Mr. Ritchie assisted me in stopping a garnishment for spousal support. I found him to be both knowledgeable and professional. Mr. Ritchie had an excellent sense of urgency in getting my case resolved. I have nothing but good things to say about my experience, and I am glad to recommend his services.
From the first moment I met Mr. Alexander Collins (Collins, Ritchie and Ervin, LLP) I was at ease. Mr. Collins was very specific to what can be done and what was “urban legend”. The cost of my divorce was very minimal and the divorce process was pretty painless once I got Alex on board. I would and do highly recommend the services of Collins, Ritchie, and Erin, LLP Attorneys at Law if the need of an attorney is needed.
We had Matthew Ritchie as our Attorney and he was awesome! ! He responds back very well to email which communication is very important to us! !!

I feel that I always get unbiased and straight-forward legal advice which is exactly what I want and its always done in a friendly manner that makes you confident your attorney has your back!
Matthew Ritchie was very supportive and helpful during my divorce. He is very knowledgeable and easy to work with and I absolutely recommend him. I have since referred others to him and they have had similar experiences. That was definitely money well spent
