    A guardianship is an involuntary trust relationship in which one party, called the guardian, acts for an individual called a ward. The law regards the ward as incapable of managing his or her own person and/or affairs.

    The questions and answers block to the right contains an overview of the guardianship process.  If you have additional questions about the guardianship process and whether or not it applies to your particular situation, it may be wise to consult an attorney.
