Interdiction is a way to legally protect a person who cannot make reasoned decisions regarding his or her person or property. If a court changes a person’s legal status to an interdict, that person loses certain rights to take care of him/herself and his/her property. The interdict’s right to contract, right to marry, and right to vote are also lost. The court will appoint someone to assume certain responsibilities. Options that are less restrictive than interdiction are preferred by the court, if available.The procedure is only used if there is not a less restrictive way to protect the interests of the effected person.
