Appointment of curator, administrator or guardian

In certain situations and despite being legally of age, people may be considered incapable of looking after themselves properly. In such cases, a curator, administrator or guardian will be appointed to protect the person in question, who is then declared either fully or partially incapable of managing their own affairs.

There are big differences between the roles played by a curator, administrator and guardian in terms of their authority and the effect of their appointment on the person in question. We can help you apply to the court for this type of measure and can advise you on the possibilities.


An administrator or guardian may also be assigned to a minor, and his or her appointment will affect the authority of the minor’s parents. This is another issue on which we can advise you.
