someone is unable to make decisions for himself or herself (usually a child or someone who has become incapacitated through
age, medical condition, or disability), a guardianship might need to be created to benefit that person. In
New Jersey, a guardianship should only be established if it is deemed necessary. The court can appoint
a guardian of the person, a guardian of the estate, or both. Our office can help you to assess whether
a guardianship is appropriate for someone that you believe might be incapacitated.
