What The Guardianship Process Entails

Guardianship is the process through which a court appoints a person or agency to act on behalf of an individual. Guardianships can be on behalf of the person, on behalf of their estate, or both. A guardianship on behalf of a person is where the court would appoint an individual to act on behalf of an incapacitated individual to make all of their personal decisions involving their health, education and general well-being. A guardianship with regard to an individual's estate would involve appointing a person to manage the financial affairs and assets of an individual. The court can also order that one person be a guardian as to both the person and their estate.

The guardianship process involves several technical steps including obtaining statements from several doctors with regard to the individual's medical condition. It also involves the court's assessment of the person who is requesting to be the guardian of the individual, to be sure that that person is the appropriate person to be guardian.
