A guardian is a person who is legally responsible for another person. This can be a child or an adult, a person who just needs financial care or one who may need medical care or attention to special needs, such as mental health. A guardian is appointed by a court to oversee the legal, financial and personal affairs of a ward (the person who needs the care of the guardian).
Guardian of the Person: This type of guardian has physical custody of the ward and provides for their everyday needs. Food, shelter, clothing and other basic necessities must be provided and the guardian will also make decisions about medical treatment and other professional services the ward may need in Indianapolis.
• A Guardian of the Estate: This type of guardian is appointed by Indianapolis court to manage financial assets of the ward. A Guardian of the Estate may pay the wards debts, deposit funds into their account, and pay the ward’s income taxes.
