What is it?
The determination of who has the legal duty and power to care for a person under age 18 years or a person 18 years or older, who because of some legal disability such as incompetence, is considered unable to care for him/herself.
Where do I go?
The Probate Court where the person resides or is found. However, if the person is under age 18, and the matter arises out of a protective proceeding, a delinquency proceeding or a domestic relations custody case, then the Family Court.
