Involuntary guardianship of an adult
If you believe an adult is incapable of managing their personal care, their financial affairs, or both, you may petition the court to appoint a guardian to promote the person's well-being or protect the person's human and civil rights. The court may appoint a total guardian or a limited guardian. In either case, the guardian encourages the person under guardianship to build independence and self-reliance.
