Guardianship

Guardianship

A guardianship is a legal process to give one person (Guardian) legal authority over a minor child or a mentally incapacitated adult (Ward). A Guardian has the responsibility of a parent for their Ward, including the ability to make legal decisions and the responsibility to care for and provide for their Ward. Guardianships can be full or limited.
