In legal terms: A Guardianship court proceeding is where the court determines if a person is legally incapacitated. To be legally declared incapacitated means that they are unable to make medical or financial decisions for themselves. This decision is made by three court-appointed doctors who evaluate the incapacitated person. If a person is determined to be legally incapacitated, the judge appoints a guardian to make medical and financial decisions on behalf of that person.
