When can an emergency temporary guardianship (ETG) appointment be granted?

An emergency temporary guardianship is going to be granted after a petition has been filed and the court has conducted a hearing to determine if the allegations in the petition are true and if in fact, made a finding that the respondent, the person on the other end of the petition, is not capable of making decisions that are in their best interest. In other words, that they are basically a threat to themselves and they can’t made medical decisions and they can’t make financial decisions that are in their own best interest, that are not rational for somebody of that age and capacity.
