A person given the right of guardianship has to be older then the age of 18 and act for the best of the assigned individual and not look after their own benefits.

How it Works?

Guardianship involves certain terms and conditions and sometimes the authority of the assigned guardian may be limited to certain field only. For example, if the guardian is assigned as a plenary guardian then the individual has the right to take decision as to where will the represented person reside, with whom they can reside, whether they are liable to work or not and the type of education they would be receiving.

A guardian should always work in the best interest of the represented person making them liable to take proper beneficial decisions for themselves.
