What is guardianship?
Guardianship is a legal process in which rights are taken away from one individual and given to someone else.
Guardianship is a serious legal matter and a court will not grant a guardianship if less restrictive means to help are available.
When is it needed?
- An elderly person no longer has the capacity to care for himself or manage his financial affairs.
- A disabled person has attained the age of 18, but cannot assume adult responsibilities.
- A minor has received an inheritance outside of a trust.
