A guardianship is defined as the appointment of an individual as a guardian to make decisions on behalf of another who is unable to make such decisions because they are either legally incompetent or because they are a minor child. This appointment is made under the supervision of the probate court.
The guardian is the legally appointed person who will manage personal affairs, health care decisions, the management the finances, or other required decisions for an individual or individuals relating to the person and their estate. The requirements of who may be a guardian are mandated by statute. Most appointed guardians are often a family member.
A Guardianship is an important tool which may help protect the ward’s legal rights, finances, and estate in the unfortunate event of incapacitation, or diminished mental or physical capabilities. A guardianship of a minor is designed to protect the rights of the minor children’s finances where a minor has money or property to be kept under court supervision until the minor reaches the age of eighteen.
