Guardianship in Michigan for Adults Who Become Disabled

06/27/2019

Adults who were formerly competent but are now disabled or “incapacitated,” meaning they lose the ability to take care of themselves, may need to have a guardian appointed to make informed decisions for them. Guardians in the State of Michigan take care of an incapacitated adult’s needs and can limit the incapacitated person’s right to handle their own matters.

Guardians for formerly competent adults who are now incapacitated are appointed by probate courts at the request of a petitioner. A hearing is then held to consider this request. To learn more, click here.

A court may require a guardian to purchase a Guardianship Surety Bond to protect the incapacitated person’s interests and affairs in accordance with State of Michigan statutes.
