A guardian is someone other than the biological parent entrusted with the legal responsibility of caring for a child under 18.
In some cases, an individual other than a minor can have a guardian, but only if that individual is significantly unable to provide for himself or herself and unable to care for his or her own needs. A guardian is typically established upon the death of the minor’s biological parents, or in the case that the guardian believes the child is not adequately cared for by the child’s biological parents.

Guardian of the Person
This is the guardian who is court-appointed to care for the minor’s physical well-being.
Guardian of the Estate
This is the guardian who is court-appointed to care for the minor’s financial affairs.
