Adult Guardianship

Guardianship is for adults who are incapacitated and lack sufficient understanding or capacity to make or communicate responsible decisions concerning his or her own well-being as a result of any of the following:

  • Physical illness or disability
  • Mental illness
  • Mental disorder
  • Mental deficiency
  • Chronic use of drugs
  • Chronic intoxication or other cause

If it is determined by the court that the adult is incapacitated, the court can appoint a guardian to act in the interests of the incapacitated person, including in the matter of obtaining needed health care, whether for physical or mental health.

Minor Guardianship

Guardianship for a minor can be filed when someone other than the parent wants to be appointed by the Court to take over parental responsibilities. Both living parents will be required to consent to the guardianship or not go to Court to oppose the appointment. Guardians take over parental responsibilities for making decisions regarding housing, medical care, and education, among other things, for as long as the guardianship lasts.
