What is legal guardianship? It is the process of appointing a guardian over a ward, which is generally a child or an incapacitated adult. The procedure of obtaining guardianship power can vary in complexity depending on factors such as whether another party is contesting the guardianship or if it is necessary to have the adult legally deemed incapacitated. The Nevada child custody laws can be difficult to understand for the layman, and the legal process can be tedious.
