What is an emergency temporary guardianship (ETG) appointment?

An emergency temporary guardianship or an ETG is a guardianship that is granted on a temporary basis. So what that means is a parent or a guardian is going into court asking the judge to give them the authority to make medical, financial decisions over somebody who’s over 18 years of age on a temporary basis and typically that temporary basis is 90 days.
