In Nevada, the most common types of guardianship are:
- guardian of the person
- guardian of the estate
- guardian of person and estate
- temporary guardianship
A guardian of the person is responsible for the ward’s personal and medical decisions, whereas the guardian of the estate is responsible for the ward’s financial decisions only.
A guardian of the person and estate is responsible for the personal care, medical, social and financial decisions of the ward.
Under Nevada law, a judge may grant an emergency order for temporary guardianship when the petitioner can prove that the ward faces an immediate risk for financial loss or physical harm or that he or she needs medical attention.
Contested guardianship almost always has to do with the concern over elder exploitation and fraudulent access to the ward’s financial resources.
