Guardianship & Conservatorship of Incapacitated Persons

Learn about who can become a guardian of an incapacitated person and what the guardianship process is like.

Guardianship is a legal process that grants the guardian authority to care for and make decisions on behalf of an incapacitated person. An incapacitated person is someone with a clinically diagnosed condition that leaves them unable to make or communicate decisions affecting their physical health, safety, or self-care. The person asking to be named guardian is called the petitioner, and the person believed to be incapacitated is called the respondent.
