Many people know that probate occurs when someone dies, but what they may not know, is that it can also occur while a person is alive, hence the term “living probate.” Guardianships are the aspect of the living probate process dealing with a person’s physical being.

What is Guardianship?

Guardianships are a court process whereby a person is declared incapacitated and someone is granted authority over the protected person’s actual “person” or physical being. The Guardian does not have to be a family member and can be a “professional guardian.”
