What is a guardianship?

A guardianship is a legal proceeding that allows someone to go into court and ask a judge to give them authority to make financial and medical decisions for somebody else. For instance, a parent may go into court and ask a judge to give them the ability to make decisions for their child, somebody over 18, to make decisions for that persons’ medical decisions and financial decisions if that person is determined, for some reason, to be not capable of making those decisions for themselves.
