What Is A Guardianship?

When an individual cannot make his or her own decisions because he or she is too young or determined by a court to be incapacitated, a guardian may be appointed by the court. The guardian has legal guardianship over the individual, called a ward, allowing the guardian to make decisions on the ward's behalf.

  • Guardians are often named and guardianship specifics are detailed in wills or other estate planning documents, to ensure that if something unforeseen happens, a child or children will be cared for. Minors can be subjected to an involuntary guardianship.
  • Adult guardianships can be voluntary or involuntary, depending on the circumstances under which the adult can no longer make decisions for him or herself.
