A guardianship is a court proceeding in which a person or agency is appointed by a judge to make decisions for an adult who has been determined to be incompetent. No person in Wisconsin can act as a guardian for an adult unless appointed by a court, and no guardian has any powers over an adult except those given by statutes and the court order.

A minor guardianship is similar to an adult guardianship, but the person subject to guardianship is an individual under the age of 18.
