Types of Guardianship for Adults

The court strives to allow people to maintain as much independence as possible while getting the help they need. Thus, judges can issue three types of guardianships, depending on the degree of incapacitation. The options are:

  • Guardianship of the person
  • Guardianship of the property
  • Guardianship of the person and property
  • Special limited guardian

Additionally, the judge can appoint an attorney to represent your loved one. The guardian will ensure that the individual’s legal rights are represented during court proceedings.

Serving as a Guardian

Before you can act as a guardian, you’ll need to testify about certain background information and complete a training program. Additionally, the judge might require that you purchase a bond to protect the incapacitated person. This bond will act as an insurance policy in case you mismanage the funds.

Then you will provide services based on the type of guardianship the court-ordered. For instance, if the court ordered you to serve as the guardian of the person, you’ll make decisions based on the individual’s welfare and health. On the other hand, if you’re a guardian of the property, you’ll handle financial management tasks and file annual reports. However, if you’re both the guardian of the person and the property, you’ll need to do both. Your attorney can go over your duties with you to ensure that you follow the letter of the law.
