It is always better to plan ahead, but if a person becomes incapacitated before appointing an agent to make decisions for them by executing a Financial Power of Attorney, Heath Care Surrogate Designation, and Living Will, the court must appoint a guardian. The Baby Boomers' Barrister will guide you through the stressful guardianship process.
A guardian's authority can be limited or quite broad. In a court-ordered guardianship proceeding, the judge will decide the extent of the guardian's authority, and who the guardian will be.
