Guardianship procedures through probate in Jefferson County, MO with hearing set June 20 and attempts for earlier hearing due to mental health issues of the one I wish to be guardian for. She has a court appointed attorney and I have no one but myself. Neither one of us can afford our attorneys fees, etc. I am looking for pro bono representation for myself as I pursue getting guardianship approval, especially and mostly for the hearing, hopefully soon. This is a dire situation. The one who needs guardianship is all for it, but of course her attorney will try to change her mind...but her mind is NOT stable enough to understand this process!
Make some calls. Look at some websites. See if anyone will take payments. Call the bar association. See if there is a volunteer attorney project.
This response is only a basic answer to your question and is not intended to be legal advise. It is your job to hire an attorney and to discuss the specifics of this question with him or her. I am not giving you specific legal advise and there is no attorney-client relationship created by my answer to your question. The choice of an attorney is an important decision that you must make and that choice should not be made upon adverting alone.
Call the local county bar association and also the legal aid society in your county. Good luck.
