Has your loved one lost the ability to make decisions for themselves? Do they need someone to make financial decisions for them? These are the types of questions asked when considering a guardianship. That is where guardians come in. They manage the affairs of an incapacitated person (call a “ward”) under court supervision.
Guardians are fiduciaries to the ward with important obligations and duties, including duties of competency, loyalty and full disclosure. Texas law also imposes many procedural requirements upon guardians to make sure the ward’s affairs are properly handled.
