A guardianship for an adult may be necessary when a person is impaired and is unable to make or communicate informed decisions regarding their medical care, general health and wellbeing, and placement. A guardianship for a child (minor guardianship) may be necessary when the parents will be absent from the child’s life and unable to provide care, such as in death, incarceration, extended in-patient mental health, substance abuse treatment, or hospitalization.
Once a guardian is appointed, they must file annual reports updating the court on the condition of the ward. There is generally a review hearing once every third year.
