Learn about who can become a guardian of an incapacitated adult 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 adult.

The person asking to be named guardian is called the petitioner, and the person believed to be incapacitated is called the respondent.
