Guardianship – Let Somebody Take Care of You

000It is also good to have somebody who takes care about you. Usually parents are those who look after a child, guide him and are responsible for him. Unfortunately children can loose their parents due to different circumstances. In these cases courts are empowered to appoint a guardian for the child or person that needs special protection.


Guardianship is a legal relationship where a guardian is a person who looks after:

  • children whose parents can no longer take care of them
  • persons over 18 years old who are mentally or physically incapacitated


The guardianship may be of different types. Limited guardianship is appointed by court where a limited guardian assists in the decision making process for wards who can make responsible and informed decisions in some cases. Co-guardianship occurs when two guardians are appointed to protect the best interests of the ward. Guardian of property is concerned with providing or managing sufficient monetary resources to care for the ward. A guardian ad litem is appointed to under-age children in order to represent their interests in any legal proceedings. They can be also appointed to represent the interests of mentally ill or disabled persons.
