GUARDIANSHIPS AND PETITION FOR APPOINTMENT OF
GUARDIAN:

GUARDIANSHIP may be needed if someone cannot take care of
him/herself and or his/her property.  The person who needs
assistance is the "Proposed Ward".  If Guardianship is granted,
that person will be the "Ward".  The person who is going to take
care of the person will be the "Guardian".  Once the

guardianship is granted, that person is the "guardian".
The way to ask the Court to establish guardianship is
by filing a Petition for Appointment of Guardian.  There
are three types of guardianship:
 
1) Guardianship of the Person -
The guardian is responsible for personal/medical decisions
only.  Someone else will make all financial decisions.

2) Guardianship of the Estate -
The guardian is responsible for financial decisions only.
Someone else will make personal and health-care decisions.

3) Guardianship of the Person and the Estate -
The guardian is responsible for making not only personal/
medical decisions  but financial decisions for the ward as well.

The Nevada requirements for a Guardianship of an Adult:
A.  The proposed Ward is 18 years or older and only one
person will be the guardian of the proposed ward;
B.  Both the person who will be the guardian and the person
who will be the ward must be Nevada residents.
C.  If the guardianship is for an estate, at least some
of he money/property must be in Nevada.
D.  You have never been disbarred or suspended from
practicing law, accounting or any other profession that
involves the management of the sale of money, investments,
securities  or real property that requires a license.

GUARDIANSHIP OF A MINOR -
The guardian is responsible for the care of a minor and notice
must be given to all immediate  relatives of said minor including but
