Who is the respondent in an emergency temporary guardianship (ETG) appointment?

The respondent is going to be the person who’s on the other end of the petition. We call that a ward or the AIP, the alleged incapacitated person. That’s the person over whom somebody else is trying to get control over. The petitioner, the person who’s going to the court is going to ask a judge to give them the ability to make financial and medical decisions over somebody else who’s the respondent in that case.
