An overview of guardianships


There may come a time when a person in Washington will find themselves being appointed as a guardian. This role carries with it a lot of responsibilities. Guardianships are established for children or adults who are unable to make decisions for themselves. Children or adults who are mentally or physically incapacitated need to have a parent or guardian to act on their behalf.

Washington state government struggles with public guardianship


Under Washington law, a guardian can make important decisions for those who can't make them on their own. Among these decisions are educational choices, whether to consent to medical treatment and managing finances. Parents are more or less automatically considered the guardians of their minor children, but a court must appoint a guardian when parents have died or when individuals are incapacitated by mental illness or dementia.
