Legal issues related to families and domestic relations can be highly complex and may result in life-altering consequences. If you desire to establish a guardianship, you should consult with an attorney who comprehends the laws of guardianships. Utah guardianships are court ordered and supervised legal relationships made between the party wanting the guardianship and the ward. Wards are often minors or adults who have mental disabilities.
The term ‘guardian’ generally refers to the person appointed to take care of another individual when it comes to being responsible for their health, nutrition, education, residence, and personal care. A guardian may also be a person nominated by a parent to take care for their child in limited situations. The minor or incapacitated adult appointed to the guardian is known as the “ward.”
