The court appoints a guardian to oversee the person

31, Jul 2021

The court appoints a guardian (family member/friend or professional guardian) to oversee the person and/or property of an individual (Ward) who has been deemed incapacitated due to mental/cognitive issues or physical disabilities.

Guardianship is a legal process that is intended to protect someone who can no longer care for their own well-being and make safe and sound decisions about themselves personally or their property. This can be the result of lack of capacity and due to not having adequate estate planning documents in place, minor children losing their parents, infancy, or disability.  Guardianship is sometimes necessary to prevent self-neglect and stop undue influence or exploitation of our must vulnerable population. The purpose of guardianship is to protect those who cannot protect themselves by appointing a legal guardian to care for the individual.
