In the Court of Chancery, a Guardian is a person appointed by the Court to make medical and/or financial decisions for a disabled person. There are three types of guardianships: Guardianship of an adult person, guardianship of an adult person's property and guardianship of the property of a minor child who is under eighteen.

Notice to the Department of Justice for Medicaid Planning The Court of Chancery no longer requires notice to be sent to the Department of Justice when a petition for Medicaid planning is filed, including all petitions to transfer an asset, petitions to establish a Miller Trust, or petitions to establish a Special Needs Trust. Once a disabled person has become qualified to receive Medicaid, the Court will require proof of such qualification as well as a copy of any signed trust instrument, including Miller Trusts or Special Needs Trusts. All documentation is to be sent directly to the Court of Chancery.
