What is Guardianship?

Navigating the complexities of legal matters involving guardianship can be overwhelming. Guardianship refers to a legal process wherein a person is appointed to make decisions on behalf of another individual who cannot manage their own affairs. This often arises in situations involving minors, incapacitated adults, or individuals with special needs. The primary goal of guardianship is to ensure the well-being and protection of those who cannot advocate for themselves.

What are the Different Types of Guardianships?

There are several types of guardianships, depending on your circumstances and whether or not you've already included a guardian in your will. This includes limited guardianship, emergency guardianship, and successor guardianship. Typically, it is recommended that you choose someone close to you, such as a family member or long-term friend. Should you pass away without a named guardian, the court usually tries to do the same and choose a guardian who was a relative or close friend of you and your family.

What Should You Consider When Choosing a Guardian?

A few factors to consider when you choose a guardian include:

  • Their moral beliefs
  • Their age and health
  • Their physical abilities
  • Their free time to care for a child
