Welcome and thank you for your question. I will be the professional that will be assisting you.
Since she is no longer a minor, what you would need to apply for is a Guardianship of An Incapacitated Adult.
An Incapacitated Person (AIP) is someone who needs some help to care for themselves or manage their property or financial affairs. This kind of guardianship case is brought in Supreme Court or County Court under Article 81 of the Mental Hygiene Law.
About Article 81 Guardianship
An Article 81 Guardianship is very individualized and specific to what decisions are made by the guardian and what decisions are made by the person with the disability. The Judge will appoint a court evaluator. As the eyes and ears of the Court, the court evaluator will meet with the possible incapacitated individual, investigate and report whether or not a guardian should be appointed and, if so, what powers the guardian should have. The Court will always hold a hearing. Generally, it is best if a lawyer handles this kind of guardianship case. Contact the Supreme Court or County Court in your county for more information.
