  • A guardianship is a legal proceeding in court in which a guardian is appointed to exercise the legal rights of an incapacitated person (ward) and/or for the ward’s assets.  This legal proceeding deprives an individual of her/his right to be accommodated and supported in choosing and making decisions.
