Adult Guardianship is a legal process where the Court determines that an
individual does not have the capacity or ability to make or communicate decisions
for themselves. The court then appoints a Guardian to make those decisions
for them here in court.
Each county has form packets here is another example..
She makes application here and pays filing fees, they post a notice and then there will be a hearing on her application with the judge.He will appoint here and she may have to post a bond here as she is sworn in as guardian of the person and her estate(financial decisions).
