A competency hearing is a legal assessment of the ability of a defendant or participant to understand and rationally participate in a court process. In the context of Family Law, these are usually used to determine possible guardianship in the event of the dissolution of marriage or death of a spouse, or who will care for an elderly parent or family member.
