What is a Guardianship?

Guardianship in Kentucky involves a legal arrangement where a court-appointed adult takes on the responsibility of caring for a ward who has been deemed legally disabled and unable to manage their personal and financial affairs. The guardian, who may be a friend or family member, steps in to support the disabled individual in their day-to-day needs.

If there is no suitable guardian available, the court appoints the Cabinet for Health and Family Services as the state guardian. You can learn more about the duties of a guardian and how to set up a legal guardianship by contacting Elder Law Lawyers to arrange your consultation.

Your Adult Guardianship FAQs

In certain regions, an adult guardianship may be referred to as a “conservatorship.”

Conservatorship is a legal arrangement where a court appoints someone to oversee the affairs of a minor or an incapacitated individual. It allows for legal guardianship over adults needing assistance, often used by families for the medical, financial, and mental health needs of a parent.

The level of conservatorship depends on the individual’s decision-making capacity, ranging from limited control to full control, similar to a parent-child relationship. In the case of a minor, this is most often referred to as guardianship.
