Guardianship: What is it? When is it needed?
“A guardian is one who is entrusted by law with the care of another person or his estate or both. One who guards, protects, or preserves…”
The law generally presumes that an adult eighteen years of age or older is capable of handling his/her own affairs. A guardian may be appointed as a substitute decision maker if a person is disabled because of:
- Mental disability
- Physical incapacity
- Mental illness
- Developmental disability
The disability must prevent the person from making and communicating responsible decisions about his/her personal affairs.
