Emergency Guardian

If there is likely to be substantial harm to the Respondent's health, safety or welfare if a guardian is not appointed immediately, the court may appoint a guardian without having to give notice or go through the normal procedures. A temporary guardianship only lasts for 60 days, at which point the court will need to decide whether to make the guardianship permanent after everyone is given notice.
