Guardianship And Conservatorship

Guardianship is the legal process by which a guardian is appointed to care for and make personal and health care decisions on behalf of another person. A conservatorship is similar to a guardianship, except a conservatorship deals with finances rather than personal and health care issues. These processes are very involved as they take away the legal rights of the person for whom the guardian or conservator has been appointed.

While guardianship and conservatorship can often be avoided with careful planning, there are times when, no matter how much one plans, the process cannot be avoided. When this happens, our clients can depend on us for assistance with the court process to be appointed, for advice on carrying out their duties and preparing required court documentation.
