A court proceeding to determine incapacity will take place before a guardian is appointed. The guardianship will allow a parent or caregiver to continue working with doctors, educators, and maintaining any government benefits on the now adult’s behalf. Adults with traumatic brain injuries or severe mental health issues would also benefit from a guardianship. In Texas, by signing a Designation of Guardian, you may appoint a guardian for yourself that only takes effect if you become incapacitated. With the well-being of your family at stake, you need to be sure that all legalities have been handled correctly when appointing a guardian.
