A guardian is a person legally designated by court order to watch over another person. A guardianship is often appropriate in cases of an elderly person who is being exploited, or is unable to handle his or her daily affairs. Guardianships are also appropriate in various circumstances concerning disabled persons or minors. In most cases a family member is the logical person to assume guardianship responsibilities, but sometimes a professional guardian is required. A guardianship proceeding is not a simple matter.
