Guardianship And Incompetency
A court may appoint a guardian for a minor child or an adult who is deemed to be incompetent.
Guardianship And Parent
When parents are unavailable, unable or unwilling to care for a minor child, the court may appoint a guardian. The guardian of a minor child, as guardian of the person, typically has all of the rights and responsibilities associated with the care and custody of a minor child.
Guardianship And Estates
A guardian may also be guardian of the estate, responsible for managing the financial resources of the ward.
Appointment Of A Guardian
Once the need for a guardianship is established, the appointment of a minor’s guardian is determined by what is in the child’s best interest.
