Guardianship is a court proceeding in which a guardian is appointed to exercise the legal rights of an individual. Some common reasons that guardianships are established are as follows:
For an elderly person who has become incapacitated and can no longer handle their financial or personal matters
For a minor child who stands to receive property valued at more than $15,000
For a developmentally disabled child who turns 18 years old and needs assistance with financial or personal legal matters
