There may be times when a person is unable to make decisions or properly care for themselves. Children may not be ready to assume the responsibilities of an adult when they turn 18, for example. In these situations, the law has a procedure where a concerned person may petition the court and ask to be appointed as a Guardian for the person in need of care. When appointed, the Guardian is then accountable to the court for the well-being of the person under Guardianship who is referred to in court as a “protected person.” There are different types of Guardianships, depending on the specific needs of the minor or the incapacitated person.
