Establishing Guardianships in Upper Marlboro & the Surrounding Areas

In Maryland, guardianship may apply to a minor or disabled person (known as a “ward”) in the following ways:

  • A Guardian of the Person is appointed to make decisions pertaining to the ward’s education, living situation, health care, and other personal matters. This may include providing food and shelter and taking the ward to medical appointments, and even acting as a companion to or checking in on the ward to make sure they are doing well.
  • A Guardian of the Property is appointed to make financial decisions for the ward. This may include paying bills, managing finances, making investments, paying taxes, and generally making financial and legal decisions.

Most often, a guardianship of person and property will be sought in the same petition. A guardian has a duty to act in the best interests of the ward and should make decisions accordingly.
