A ward describes a person who is either a minor who doesn’t have the life skills to care for themselves and need help, or an elderly person who is mentally incapable of making their own informed decisions. In these circumstances, a legal authority needs to be in place to assume responsibilities of protecting the ward’s best interest.
If the ward did not establish prior legal documents such as any estate planning, will, or power of attorney, then a legal guardianship might be needed to authorize a one person to make personal care and financial decisions. However, with such great responsibilities, this role can only be assigned to a person via court appointment to prevent the abuse of power. Furthermore, the process is expensive, including fees for the court hearings, attorney fees, accounting fees, and more.
One of the main responsibilities as a legal guardian is to set up arrangement for the personal care of the ward.
