Custody Matters

We have experience navigating complex family issues to achieve a successful resolution to custody matters.

After we identify the reasons for changing custody and the information of the custodian, we’ll move forward with the process.

Guardianship

Guardianship

Guardianship gives a court-appointed individual or entity, known as the guardian, the ability to make legal decisions for an individual who is found to be incapacitated. Both adults and minors (those under the age of 18), as well as missing persons, may be considered incapacitated. Preparing for the guardianship of an adult or a child is different, but we’re well-versed in both processes to ensure a seamless transition. 

Legitimation 

Legitimation is the process of granting legal rights to a non-legal father and getting him rights to visitation. Non-legal fathers seek legitimation to ensure visitation and legal rights. We’ll draft the legal petition, file it with the Clerk of Court, and accompany you on court day if the mother has signed the petition.

Juvenile Court 

Juvenile court is a separate legal system developed specifically for juvenile cases, with its own judges, prosecutors, and support staff. To successfully navigate the juvenile court system, it takes knowledge and experience developed through years of work. Hildebrand Law Office has the insight and skills to aid juveniles and their families in reaching a successful solution for a number of legal challenges.

Name Changes 

Whether you’re an adult wishing to petition the court for a name change or a parent seeking to get proper authority to change a child’s name in the absence of a birth parent, we can help you take the necessary steps to achieve your goals. After the initial meeting and the judge enters the order for the name change, a new birth certificate will be prepared.

Advance Health Care Directive

Advance Health Care Directive

When it comes to your health, you want to make sure you’re making the best decisions for your care. However, what happens if you are unable to direct your care? With an advanced care directive, you can legally designate a person, known as an agent, who will have the power to make decisions on your behalf concerning your treatment and care. The directive may also specify the types of treatment, giving the agent guidance to the care you want to be employed or excluded.

Power of Attorney 

What happens when a person is no longer able to handle personal affairs? A financial power of attorney allows you to designate the person who will make decisions regarding the management of your assets and liabilities, or transact your business on your behalf, in such situations.
