What is a Guardian?

If you have a loved one who can no longer take care of themselves, guardianship may be an option.

A guardian is a person legally appointed to an individual who can no longer make or safe or sound decisions about his or her person or property. The only way that a guardian can be appointed is when a person is declared legally incapacitated by a judge.

It’s important to speak with a qualified guardianship attorney to make sure your loved one is protected.
