Guardianship Based on Determination

Guardianship Based on Incapacity

Home » Our Practice » Incapacity & Guardianship » Guardianship Based on Determination

If a person has been determined to be Incapacitated by the Court but has no adequate estate planning documents, the Court will appoint a Guardian to exercise some or all of the Ward’s delegable rights.  Plenary Guardianship involves the removal of all of a Ward’s rights while a Ward who retains any rights has only a Limited Guardianship.  As with all forms of Guardianship, the activities of both Plenary and Limited Guardian are subject to ongoing judicial supervision and annual reporting requirements.
