Guardianship is usually awarded in a situation where an individual is unable to take care of themselves. This could be due to disability or momentary incapacity, or because the individual is a child.
A legal guardian must ensure that the interests of their ward are paramount. This applies to both their personal well-being and their financial interests.
There are also different types of guardianship, which can differ in the extent to which the guardian has control over the ward and their interests.
