Typically, the court will appoint the same person to serve as to guardian of the person and guardian of the property, but may appoint separate guardians. Much depends on the facts and circumstances. Whenever the is a family dispute over who should be guardian the risk of the court appointing a third party increases and, all the more so, where there are concerns of financial and/or physical abuse. Since it is not unusual for people to exaggerate or embellish the facts, an experienced guardianship attorney may be able to nip many problems in the bud.
