Unlike powers of attorney, guardianships require court involvement.

A guardianship may be sought by anyone with an interest in a person who is not able to care for himself or handle his own affairs. An executed power of attorney can eliminate the need for a guardianship, but a guardianship may be sought even when a power of attorney exists if there is a disagreement.

Guardianships can be obtained over a person, his estate, or both and may be temporary or permanent.

Often, guardianships are sought for minors, mentally or physically disabled adults, and the elderly.
