A guardianship is a court-ordered relationship that gives a guardian the legal authority to make decisions for a person who is mentally incapable of making decisions alone. Being a guardian is an important responsibility and, thus, the court requires certain conditions to be met to become a guardian.
To become a guardian, you must file a petition with the court and demonstrate why a guardianship is needed any why you qualify to be the person’s guardian. In making a petition, you need to provide the court with a lot of information and share that information with the relatives of the person who needs a guardian. You will need to attend at least one court hearing, and possibly more, to explain to the judge why a guardianship is necessary.
