Guardianship And Conservatorship Attorneys
When a person cannot manage their personal or financial affairs, it is up to concerned relatives or friends to take action. They can petition the court to create a guardianship (giving the guardian control over such things as living arrangements and health care) or a conservatorship (giving the conservator control over the person’s financial assets). A guardianship or conservatorship is an important means of protecting a vulnerable person from abuse or fraud. Both adults and minors can be subject to a guardianship or conservatorship.

Providing Efficient Services And Vigorous Representation
Before a guardian or conservator is named, a hearing must be held in court. The prospective ward’s spouse and relatives must be informed of the hearing. The judge must be persuaded that the prospective guardian or conservator is a fit candidate and can carry out his or her responsibilities.
In a guardianship or conservatorship proceeding, the court will appoint a court investigator, a physician who will provide a report on the prospective ward’s capacity and a lawyer, if the ward has not already obtained legal representation.
Our law firm can assist you in these and all other matters pertaining to guardianships and conservatorships for an affordable fee.
A power of attorney can be an effective means for accomplishing the same goals as a guardianship or conservatorship, but at a lower cost and with fewer legal hassles. An attorney at our firm can review your situation and help you determine the best solution.
