Protecting Against the Equifax Data Breach

Equifax collects and keeps files on confidential consumer information such as addresses, employment, Social Security, driver’s license, and credit card numbers, all of which may possibly be used by criminals to open lines of credit and wreak financial havoc for years to come.

Understanding the Basics of Guardianship

Guardians are expected to act in the best interests of the incapacitated person. While guardianship removes certain rights and privileges from the ward, the intent is to preserve as much of the person’s independence and decision-making as possible. In Texas, the two types of guardianship are Guardian of the Person, whose responsibility is to take care of the ward’s physical well-being, and Guardian of Estate, who is appointed to manage a ward’s assets. Both types of guardians may be appointed by the court and can be the same individual or entity.
