Guardianship establishment

Guardianship is established for the protection of financial and personal rights and interests of an adult with restricted active legal capacity. The guardianship establishment is decided by court, on the basis of an application by a guardianship authority or person for whom the guardianship is established. Guardianship is organized based on the place of residence of the person needing the guardianship. Guardianship is established for the protection of financial and personal rights and interests of an adult if the person has restricted active legal capacity. Application for guardianship establishment for an adult is submitted to the court by the district administration or by the person. Upon the court's request the district administration collects and presents necessary information for guardianship establishment and provides an opinion during the proceedings.
