Rights that Might be Affected

A good guardian will take into account the wishes and desires of the ward when making decisions about residence, medical treatments, and end-of life decisions. The courts will remove only those rights that the proposed ward is incapable of handling. When the courts appoint a guardian, the following rights of the ward may be removed:

  • Determine residence
  • Consent to medical treatment
  • Make end-of-life care decisions
  • Possess a driver’s license
  • Manage, buy, or sell property
  • Own or possess a firearm or weapon
  • Contract or file lawsuits
  • Marry
  • Vote
