Subject: Defining terms

Defining who is a disabled person should be easy, except it is not. Our statutes are vague and difficult. Who is a person that is not fully able to manage his person or estate?
These are the words of 755 ILCS 5/11a – 2.
Do the framers of the guardianship statute realize that 50% of the population of the United States of America is below average! Indeed, if you think about it, who is at all times relevant able to “fully manage his person or estate.” If you drawn the standard too high my metaphor seeking a guardian for the President of the United States is not that far fetched. Every one of the current candidates for the nomination of President would also qualify with flying colors for a guardian!
