Guardianship is a legal undertaking in which a guardian is delegated to execute the legal rights of a incapacitated person. The court analyzes the individual to verify if they are debilitated through a physical and mental examination and a functional analysis. If an individual is discovered to be incapacitated, the court will appoint a guardian. The guardian is given the power to invest the debilitated individual’s property, utilize the property to support the debilitated individual and must file a yearly report with the court.
