There are various reasons why a guardianship is needed. Perhaps an adult is unable to manage their own affairs and needs either a family guardian or a professional guardian. Did a minor child receive a settlement or an inheritance? Have you received custody of a minor child because the biological parents are unavailable, either because of death or some other legal reason? Has your disabled child reached the age of majority, but is still unable to handle their own affairs because of their mental disability? Or maybe your loved one has reached that point in their life where they are no longer able to make sound decisions for themselves, and need help to manage their own affairs, protect them from exploitation or to make necessary medical decisions?
