Establishing legal guardianship allows a family member, friend, or other trusted agent to make decisions on behalf of a mentally incapacitated adult or a special needs child. Legal guardianship is an option that people often turn to when someone's health deteriorates suddenly and there is an immediate need. It allows the guardian to make legal, financial, and health care decisions for the incapacitated person, who is known as the ward.
