An important and often overlooked part of estate planning is planning for your affairs if you become incapacitated. If you cannot manage your own health and safety and or finances and do not have a plan for someone to manage them for you, you may require guardianship. A guardian is a court appointed individual or corporation who will act on your behalf, manage your healthcare, and is responsible for your assets. Speak with an attorney if you have questions about guardianship.
