GUARDIANSHIPS

A guardianship is a legal proceeding in which the court determines a person to be incapacitated (the ward) and appoints someone (the guardian) to make personal decisions for the ward where there are no sufficient alternate methods available, meaning the ward does not already have in place a durable power of attorney for health care decisions, or the person serving as agent under such a power of attorney is not doing their job.  We can not only guide you through the process of getting a guardianship set up through the court, but also provide guidance to ensure you meet the annual reporting requirements to the court.
 

CONSERVATORSHIPS

A conservatorship is similar to a guardianship, except that it involves your money and other assets.  A conservatorship is a legal proceeding in which the court determines a person to be incapacitated (the conservatee) and appoints someone (the conservator) to make financial decisions for the conservatee where there are no sufficient alternate methods available, meaning the conservatee does not already have in place a revocable trust or a durable power of attorney for financial decisions (or the person serving as agent under such a power of attorney is not doing their job).  We can not only guide you through the process of getting a conservatorship set up through the court, but also provide guidance to ensure you meet the annual reporting requirements to the court.
