Who can be appointed as a guardian under an emergency temporary guardianship (ETG) appointment?

In an ETG appointment, or Emergency Temporary Guardianship appointment, it’s going to be somebody over the age of 18 years of age, who’s not a convicted felon. Typically, when we’re dealing with a young adult who has an addiction issue and/or mental illness issue, it’s going to be one of the parents, the person who has direct personal knowledge, who knows that person well, and is most capable of making rational decisions that are in their child’s best interest.
