The case report in this chapter is about the competence of adults to manage their own affairs. Evaluations of this type help courts decide whether a guardian should be appointed to handle the day-to-day affairs of the individual deemed incompetent to do so. Unlike previous chapters, this case report will be described in the context of two principles: awareness of the important differences between clinical and forensic domains; and awareness of the relevant legal, ethical, scientific, and practice literatures pertaining to FMHA.
