The need for a guardianship can arise suddenly. A guardianship is a protective proceeding over a minor. The proceeding may involve the appointment of a guardian of the person who is responsible for the care and custody of the minor. Or, in some cases, the matter may involve the administration of the minor’s assets. Guardianships are highly technical court matters that require experience in the probate court.
