What is Guardianship?

Guardianship is a legal process where a court appoints an individual or organization (the guardian) to care for and make decisions on behalf of another person (the ward) who is unable to manage their own affairs due to age, incapacity, or disability. Guardianship can cover personal, financial, or medical decisions.

Here are the main types of guardianship:

  • Guardianship of a Minor: Appointed for children whose parents are unable to care for them due to death, incapacity, or other reasons. The guardian is responsible for the child's upbringing, including decisions about education, health care, and general welfare.
  • Guardianship of an Adult: Established for adults who cannot manage their own affairs due to mental illness, developmental disability, or other conditions. The guardian makes decisions about the ward's personal care and finances.
  • Guardianship of the Estate: Involves managing the financial affairs and property of the ward. The guardian must act in the ward's best financial interests, making decisions about investments, paying bills, and managing assets.
  • Guardianship of the Person: Focuses on the personal care and well-being of the ward. The guardian makes decisions about medical care, living arrangements, and other personal matters.

The process for establishing guardianship typically involves filing a petition with the court, providing evidence of the need for guardianship, and often a hearing where the judge decides if guardianship is necessary and appoints a suitable guardian. The guardian is usually required to provide regular reports to the court and may be subject to ongoing court supervision.

When to Consider Guardianship for Loved Ones

Protect the rights of your loved ones by setting up a guardianship. How do you know when you need a guardianship? In life, situations may arise where family members are no longer able to physically take care of themselves or their financial affairs. A guardianship will help you care for an incapacitated family member or a minor child.

Guidance on Guardianship for Minors' Assets

In many situations, a child may find him or herself in possession of a large sum of money. Minors are often unable to make the right financial decisions for themselves and may need assistance protecting their assets. With a guardianship, the child’s assets will be protected until he or she reaches a certain age.

Our guardianship attorneys are able to assist you with cases involving guardianship of a minor and involving your ability to care for incapacitated family members. We work hard to ensure that your guardianship concerns are resolved as quickly as possible.
