Guardianships are designed to protect people from exploitation. A guardian is a person who is appointed to make decision for a person who cannot make decisions for him or herself. Therefore, guardians are most often appointed to the elderly who are considered “incapacitated.” However, guardians are also appointed to minor children who are not capable of making decisions. The guardian is responsible for making decisions regarding the well being of the person and/or the person’s finances. The probate court has jurisdiction over guardianship cases.
Guardians can also be appointed to the estate. A guardian of the estate is responsible for making financial decisions relating to a person’s assets and money. The guardian must act in the interest of the person and protect their assets.
