Guardianship is a legal process where a disabled person receives a court appointed guardian to manage her financial and legal affairs. Guardianship is often inevitable where a disabled person has lost the ability to manage their own affairs and does not have a power of attorney to manage their affairs for them. Guardianship is also an effective option for a disabled person who is being taken advantage of by an unscrupulous power of attorney, caregiver, or family member. Since the court continues to monitor the guardians it appoints, guardianship is a good way to protect the disabled persons’ personal care and finances. Guardianship is also available for minors receiving personal injury awards.
