New Jersey Department of Human Services Bureau of Guardianship Services: An Overview of Guardianship

At age 18, all individuals, including those with developmental disabilities, reach the legal age of majority. This means that parents can no longer make decisions legally on behalf of an adult child, regardless of the nature of the individual's disability and regardless of whether or not the individual still lives with the family. Some families may want to consider guardianship as an option for their family member. Join us as the New Jersey Bureau of Guardianship Services (BGS) discuss guardianship options, the process of obtaining guardianship and ways BGS can help.
