Types of Guardianship
In Texas there are two types of guardianships:
- Guardianship of an estate: A caregiver has authority to manage an individual's money.
- Guardianship over a person: A caregiver has authority to care for an individual.
Additionally, incompetent adults and minor children may require one or both forms of guardianship protection based on their unique needs.
