Interdiction is a legal process where a court is asked to determine, from testimony and other evidence presented, whether a person is unable to consistently make reasoned decisions regarding their person and/or their property, or to communicate those decisions, and whose interests cannot be protected by less restrictive means. If such a finding is made, the court appoints someone to make these decisions for the person.
