Full Interdiction Law and Legal Definition

Full interdiction means the complete dismissal of ones right to aid for oneself and handle one’s affairs or estate for reason of mental incapacity. It is also called as complete interdiction. An order of full interdiction can be obtained from the court by filing a petition. A court may order a temporary or preliminary interdiction if there is substantial likelihood of the existence of grounds for interdiction. Likewise, if there is reasonable apprehension of substantial harm to the health, safety, or property of the person sought to be interdicted, then full interdiction will be ordered by the court. Following is an example of a State Law (Louisiana) on Full Interdiction. Pursuant to La. C.C. Art. 389, “A court may order the full interdiction of a natural person of the age of majority, or an emancipated minor, who due to an infirmity, is unable consistently to make reasoned decisions regarding the care of his person and property, or to communicate those decisions, and whose interests cannot be protected by less restrictive means.”
