Guardianship Sometimes our loved ones need help with their financial or personal matters. Whether it be due to age, incapacity, or some other circumstance, the Probate Courts can be asked to intervene to appoint a guardian. The guardian accepts responsibility for the financial, legal and/or personal needs of the individual who has been deemed incapacitated by a Probate Court Judge. As a result, the guardian must report regularly to the court on the status of the incapacitated person’s personal and financial status. We can help you through this difficult time by educating you about the guardianship process so that you understand what lies down the road ahead and set reasonable expectations for next steps, and by assisting you with your duties as guardian.
