Types of Guardianship in Nevada
In Nevada, there are a number of types of guardianships which apply to
different situations. However, the majority of guardians fall into one
of the following categories.
Temporary guardianships are generally granted in emergency situations,
when there is not time to appoint a normal guardian. It is usually necessary
to prove that the ward is at risk of serious injury or financial harm.
In many cases, the length of the guardianship will allow the guardian
to complete a specific task, such as selling specified property.
A guardian of the person has the power to make personal and medical decisions
for the ward. These are essentially matters related to their health care,
education, comfort, and well-being, including determining their residence,
consenting to medical treatment, and making end-of-life decisions.
The guardian of the estate is solely responsible for financial matters
impacting the ward. This will include managing all of the wards income,
handling their accounting, paying taxes on the estate, and selling assets.
The Guardian of the Estate has a legal responsibility to act in the best
interest of the ward when managing their estate.
Guardian of the Person and Estate
A guardian of the person and the estate has power over all financial, medical,
and personal decisions for the ward. They have the same responsibilities
as both a guardian of the person and a guardian of the estate.
