In emergencies such as these, you can ask the court to appoint a temporary guardian. You must show “good cause,” which means you have to have a really good reason to ask for a temporary guardianship. Even if you file for a temporary guardianship, you still have to file for a general guardianship at the same time. A temporary guardianship is an emergency order only and will end when a general guardian is appointed by the court.
