A guardianship is the appointment of an individual by the probate court to make legal decisions for another person who has become incapacitated through age or disability. Usually the guardian is a family member or attorney. Guardianships come in many forms. A guardianship can be over a person and/or an estate, and can be implemented in a variety of ways. Sometimes a minor child may need to be under guardianship, if the parents are not able to provide care for the child.
