Whether for a minor child or an incapacitated individual, a guardian has certain legal duties and responsibilities over a ward’s assets, health, and well-being. When a person is unable to control financial and personal matters, it may be necessary to establish a guardianship.
Courts appoint guardians to protect and assist incapacitated individuals. The type of guardian the judge appoints will depend on the facts and circumstances of the case. How facts are presented can make the difference between success and failure. It is vital to have the assistance of an experienced guardianship lawyer.
