A person appointed by a court to manage the affairs and assert the rights of another person who is unable to do these things. The person appointed is the guardian. There are two common ways in which a guardian is appointed:

    For a person who is incapacitated. The person might be in a coma from an injury or they might be suffering from dementia.

    For minor children. If both natural parents die or become incapacitated and they have minor children, a guardian will be appointed by a court for the children.
