Establishing Legal Guardianships in New Jersey
If a family member can no longer make decisions for himself or herself, the probate court can appoint a guardian to act on his or her behalf. Guardianships are typically granted for long-term illnesses, such as Alzheimer’s Disease or schizophrenia.

Whatever an individuals needs are, the best strategy is to begin work on a guardianship before one is necessary. The most critical aspect of this endeavor is to establish a durable power of attorney, a legal document that enables a client to act on a family member’s behalf if he or she is disabled or incapacitated.
