Who makes the medical and financial decisions for you if you should become incapacitated? Often people execute powers of attorney for that purpose. However, the individual who executed the power of attorney does not always allow the designated person to act on his behalf. In many cases there are no powers of attorney and thus no one designated to make the necessary decisions for the individuals. Guardianships are the solution.
The court appoints an individual to make the necessary financial and medical decisions for an incapacitated person. Guardianship can be established for minors, those with special needs, and for people with mental or physical health issues. Guardianships are necessary for the protection of the Ward and his estate, but must be tailored to the unique needs of the Ward.
