What will happen when you are no longer able to care for yourself or your family? In order to ensure that you and your loved ones are watched after, it may be beneficial to establish a legal guardian. A legal guardian will be able to act on your behalf in the event that you become incapacitated and are no longer able to make decisions for yourself. If a legal guardian is not named in a legal document, a court will have the power to take away the incapacitated person’s rights and give those rights to a guardian chosen by the judge.
